National Military Appreciation Month is celebrated nationally every May.  All Americans should recognize the the symbol of unity that our armed forces have.  It is to honor former and current members of the military including those who died fighting for freedom.This week is "Public Service  Recognition Week". This honors men and women who serve honorably in government in either local, state, or federal to ensure our government is the best in the world!

Military Spouse Appreciation Day is May 6th.  That pretty much speaks for itself. Behind every soldier is a spouse that takes care of things while their wife or husband defends our freedom.

V.E. Day, (victory in Europe Day) is May 8th. May 8th, 1945 is the day the Germans throughout Europe unconditionally surrendered to WW II Allies.
