Music (part 4) - Armed Forces Medley

Joint Colors/

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a day to honor our military heroes. So the first Armed Forces Day was celebrated on May 20, 1950.  Since then, this day is set as the third Saturday in May. [reference: Armed Forces Day 2016]

For 2016, Armed Forces Day comes on May 21st.  And below is a musical medley honoring all branches of the US military.

Many thanks for all those who put themselves in harms way to keep us safe, home and abroad. And music often amplifies the tribute to their sacrifices that words fall short to express.
