Military Celebrations

During the month of May and the first Saturday in June there are significant military celebrations. These dates are commemorated through various ceremonies held on military bases. In the classrooms and schools, we honor these military events with guest speakers, activities related to the military and through books and discussions.

May 16th is Armed Forces Day that is celebrated in conjunction with Armed Forces Week. This day honors the members who currently serve in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.

May 25th, Memorial Day (previously known as Decoration Day), remembers those military men and women who died serving their country. Many memorials are held on this day to honor our fallen men and women.

On Saturday, June 6th, the 71st anniversary of D-Day is celebrated. D-Day marks the day the Allied forces invaded the beaches of Normandy in World War II.

We know many of you do not teach military children, but we ask that you take the time to share the importance of our military members who help or helped to keep our country safe and free.
