May 19*: Armed Forces Day

“When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, ‘The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.’”

Judges 6:12

Today, we celebrate very different warriors – the soldiers, sailors, pilots, and others who work to keep our country safe. Since 1949, Americans have celebrated the third Saturday in May as Armed Forces Day. It’s a time to honor all those who have served this country in the military.

No matter what political opinions you hold, I think we can all agree that we should be grateful for all their sacrifices.
