Put on your red, white and blue in honor of Armed Forces Day! Held every third Saturday in May since 1950, this national holiday pays special tribute to the men and women in all five branches of the United States military — the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and the Coast Guard. While less than half of one-percent of the United States population makes up our active military, the tremendous sacrifices made by these individuals manifests itself every single day as we enjoy the freedoms of our daily lives. theTUNDRA salutes and raises its flag for all of our country’s veterans and active military personnel on this very important day of recognition.
“Our servicemen and women are serving throughout the world as guardians of peace... They are visible evidence of our determination to meet any threat to the peace with measured strength and high resolve.” —
U.S. President John F. Kennedy
