Armed Forces Day: May 20, 2017


By Linda Leek, ALA Unit 3 President

The American Legion Auxiliary Price Unit 3 will be honoring our service men and women as well as their families on this day. Wear a flag ribbon to support our troops!
We will be located at our local Smith’s in Price, so come out to get a ribbon and help to support our troops. We will also be distributing our ALA Poppies.
Armed Forces Day fact:
Is to build morale and put a new focus on the combined forces of al the military, no matter the branch. President Harry S. Truman set up the occasion to thank the military and their families on August 31 in 1949. Now it is normally celebrated on the third Saturday in May each year, with the first celebration being on May 20, 1950.
Remember to fly your American Flag, show your support.
