DETROIT, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FlowerDeliveryExpress.com, a leading online flower delivery company, wants to remind everyone that on Saturday, May 18, it is Armed Forces Day. Armed Forces Day was the result of an effort led by President Harry S. Truman to establish a single holiday to thank members of the military for their service. On Aug. 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the day's creation, replacing separate Army, Navy and Air Force days.
Representing only one percent of our population in the United States, our military willingly takes on the ultimate responsibility of protecting our entire nation. Our service members make incredible sacrifices and put themselves in harm's way for the sake of all the rest of us. When deployed not only do they miss small moments of each day that we often take for granted here at home, but also irreplaceable milestones like birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations with the people they love.
FlowerDeliveryExpress.com, CEO, Wesley Berry says, "They do not make these sacrifices alone. When our troops are called to action, so too are their families. Not only do we owe a great debt to those who serve but also to their families as well."
Armed Forces Day is a great opportunity to show your appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who serve and/or their families.
