National Military Appreciation Month - May

Veteran's Forum
America's Military - People, Achievement, History, Pride

A Special Tribute To Our Military Veterans

As a nation, we observe and participate in various national cultural and social awareness events through mass media attention and educational curriculum. However, we have not allocated appropriate recognition of the most important presence in the world today, an entity that impacts each and every American in a significant way, the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
National Military Appreciation Month (NMAM), as designated by Congress, provides a period encompassing both the history and recognition of our armed services with an in-depth look at the diversity of its individuals and achievements. It allows Americans to educate each generation on the historical impact of our military through the participation of the community with those who serve encouraging patriotism and love for America - a "reconnecting the Family of America".

The month gives the nation a forum, a framework, a time and place on which to focus, to draw attention and express our appreciation for our armed services via multiple venues and to recall our valuable history. The ideas to implement this are only limited by our imaginations. Museums, civic centers, libraries can have exhibits. Additionally, schools might invite active military and veterans to visit with students, and cities and towns can offer proclamations and special observances.

National Military Appreciation Month (May) includes VE Day, Military Spouse Day, Loyalty Day, Armed Forces Day/Week, National Day of Prayer, and Memorial Day. This very important month therefore, honors those Americans who have given their lives in defense of our nation's freedom and the men and women now serving in uniform.

It recognizes those on active duty in all branches of the services, the National Guard and Reserves plus retirees, veterans, and all of their families - well over 80 million Americans and more than 227 years of our nationís history. Let us celebrate them just as we celebrate the other important entities that make up this wonderful country of ours.

Here is NMAM's page with ideas for participating in the month's activities.


Wonder what kind of media coverage this will receive.;? ;?
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.

It probably won't get near the media attention that it deserves.
