    Armed Forces Day - Saturday, May 15th
    "The heritage of freedom must be guarded as carefully in peace as it was in war. Faith, not suspicion, must be the key to our relationships. Sacrifice, not selfishness, must be the eternal price of liberty. Vigilance, not appeasement, is the byword of living freedoms." --General Omar N. Bradley, Armed Forced Day, 1950.
    Saturday, 15 May, is Armed Forces Day -- that day first set asidein 1949 by President Harry Truman to recognize the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense and to acknowledge the extraordinary dedication of Americans in uniform standing ready in harm's way at home and around the world. In the words of President Dwight Eisenhower, "It is fitting and proper that we devote one day each year to paying special tribute to those whose constancy and courage constitute one of the bulwarks guarding
    the freedom of this nation and the peace of the free world."

    To all our fellow Patriots in uniform, we offer our heartfelt gratitude for your sacrifice and prayers for your safety.

    Please take a moment to thank our men and women in uniform!
