This Military Appreciation Month will be much different than years past where businesses nationwide celebrate the Armed Forces with special discounts and freebies. This month, we will not be able to enjoy the free weekend to amusement parks, tourist attractions, zoos or restaurants. We will not be able to enjoy the large celebrations such as Fleet Week or the Patriotic Festivals.
Before we get to down and out, let's not forget what we are truly celebrating this Military Appreciation Month, after all it's not all about the discounts, it's about our military. So, let's rise up this month and celebrate the military community, louder than before. Let's honor our military for all the sacrifices they face to protect our country.
May 1-31st, 2020 is National Military Appreciation Month. Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to publicly demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members - past and present. Each year the president makes a proclamation, reminding Americans of the important role the U.S. Armed Forces have played in the history and development of our country.
Military Spouse Appreciation Day
Observed: Friday, May 8th, 2020, traditionally set for the Friday before Mother’s Day. Many United States citizens take this day to acknowledge the significant contributions, support, and sacrifices of spouses of the Armed Forces.
Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day is a holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

Observed: Monday, May 25th, 2020, A Federal holiday observed on the last Monday in May. Memorial Day is a day for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's Armed Forces.
