October Days to Remember
As we celebrate the beginning of a new school year for many and the coming of autumn let's take time to also be thankful for our military families especially during these special times of observance for our Country.
October 10, 2016 - Columbus Day
October 13, 1775- U.S. Navy's Official Birthday:
In March 1794 Congress responded by calling for the construction of a half-dozen frigates. And, once again, the United States had a navy. Although the Continental navy was later dismantled, October 13, 1775 remains the U.S. Navy's official birthday.
Oct. 26-Day of the Deployed:
Since 2011, October 26 became known as the Day of the Deployed, a day that calls on all Americans to reflect on the service of deployed men and women and to offer support to their loved ones.
Currently, more than 2.27 million people serve as members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including those in the active Guard and Reserve components, with thousands of members deployed each year to 150 countries around the world. Their purpose is to guard our freedoms. It is our purpose to honor their courage.
If you know a serviceman, invite them over to your home for a meal in their honor. You can even put your thanks in writing! Do something different, and mail a letter to a military family, to those currently in service or a to veteran. If you’re already connected to a soldier in your life, are married to one, or have one in your family, one great way to honor them during the National Day of the Deployed is to post about them on Social Media. Let them know they’re appreciated. Use the hashtag #DayoftheDeployed, and you’ll raise awareness about this important day at the same time as giving your soldier much deserved recognition.
