Armed Forces Day 2020

Proclamation on Armed Forces Day, 2020

President Donald J. Trump

In times of war and peace alike, on land, at sea, in the skies, in cyberspace, and beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, the men and women of our Nation’s Armed Forces serve with honor and distinction and stand ready to selflessly defend our Nation.  On Armed Forces Day, we pay tribute to these patriots, whose work enables our country to shine always as a beacon of freedom and hope for the world.

Throughout our Nation’s history, our Armed Forces have protected our country, our liberty, and our founding principles.  

Today, and every day, we reaffirm our unwavering support for the millions of American patriots who fill the ranks of our Armed Forces.  We are eternally grateful for every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman, and member of the Space Force, and we deeply appreciate the sacrifices their families and loved ones make on our behalf.  As one Nation, we pledge to always honor this service and this devotion given to our great country.
