Honoring our Nation’s Heroes: May is National Military Appreciation Month


In 1999 Congress designated May as Military Appreciation Month. It is a time for our country to honor those who have served in the past as well as those who are currently in the Armed Forces. The month of May was selected because it contains many dates that celebrate and honor our military achievements, including:  VE Day, commemorating the end of World War II in Europe; Memorial Day; Armed Forces Day and Loyalty Day.

Each year, the President makes a proclamation to remind our citizens of the important role of those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. It is a time for us to remember how those who served have preserved the freedom of our country.

As we celebrate National Military Appreciation Month, please join Veterans Commemoratives in honoring, remembering and appreciating those who have served as well as those who are currently serving in our U.S. Armed Forces Since 1987 Veterans Commemoratives has been providing customized military rings, watches, jackets and gift items to honor Military Veterans who have served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and Desert Storm, and ongoing peacekeeping efforts throughout the world.
