Please join us in a National Moment of Remembrance for all the men and women of our Armed Forces who have given the ultimate sacrifice of their lives for our country.  From the civil war to our latest  conflict — Operation Enduring Freedom — more than 1,243,808 service men and women have died defending the very freedoms we are privileged to share.

On this Memorial day, please reach out to our Soldiers with honor and thanks for the very important job they do in protecting the United States of America.

Happy Armed Forces Day!

Armed Forces Day - May 16, 2015

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

Special thanks to the Tacoma Rainiers and the USO Northwest for a memorable Armed Forces Day

We had a very special Armed Forces Day this year, as our friends at USO Northwest and the Tacoma Rainiers invited us out to share our message with some fans, pass out some information, and watch an exciting game of baseball. There's just something about meeting so many kind and generous people while hearing the sounds of America's pastime! Plus, it's not everyday you get to hug a big happy Rhubarb!
