Military Appreciation Month

Appreciating Our Military Heroes For Military Appreciation Month

May is known as National Military Appreciation Month, giving us the chance to honor our military service members past and present, as well as their families. Senator John McCain proposed legislation in 1999 to choose May as National Military Appreciation Month. Both the House and Senate agreed that it was a great idea for Americans to honor and recognize U.S. Military Members during May.

Although we can and should show our appreciation throughout the year, you can find specific May celebrations to participate in, including Public Service Recognition Week, VE DAY, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Armed Forces Day, and Memorial Day.
