National Defense Transportation Day is a part of the National Transportation Week, which helps bring awareness of the importance of maintaining and advancing our transportation sector.

In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into resolution National Defense Transportation Day. Congress updated the resolution in 1962 to include National Defense Transportation Week to take place on the week ending on the third Friday in May.
