Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of every May to pay tribute to officers of the United States Armed Forces who served their country in times of war and peace. The celebration takes place during Armed Forces Week. Those honored on this day include America’s uniformed heroes serving in the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Thanks to their unique training schedules, Reserve and National Guard units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week during any period in May.

The holiday was conceived by President Harry S. Truman and established in 1949. It was celebrated for the first time on May 20, 1950. Events and activities on Armed Forces Day typically range from large parades and local celebrations to multi-service military displays. Other events include themed motorcycle rides and educational activities that teach young kids about the armed forces.
