SUNACRW encourages you to support our troops and veteran on Armed Forces Day.

ArmedForcesPOSTERproofFINAL_3613Saturday, May 17, 2014 is Armed Forces Day.

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.  On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.  The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

The SUN Area Council of Republican Women will host a booth at the Middlecreek Valley Antique Association’s Spring 2014 show.  Please stop by where children may color a picture for our troops and veterans.  Adults may also write a note of thanks and encouragement.

In the past SUNACRW has delivered pictures from children and notes from adults to our veterans in hospitals and also sent words and pictures of encouragement to our troops oversees.  They are so appreciative that are thinking about their sacrifices for our freedom.

We hope you can stop by Friday night, May 16, 2014; Saturday all day, May 17, 2014; or Sunday, May 17, 2014.

Socks for Soldiers!

tube socksThe PA Federation of Republican Women are collecting tube socks for our troops overseas.  So many little things we take for granted, like going to our drawer, pulling out a pair of socks and changing whenever we like.  Our soldiers who are over there fighting for our freedom, so we can change socks however many times a day we like, are they themselves in need of socks.

PFRW will be collecting socks at their next board meeting on August 9, 2013. If you are not attending the board meeting, but would like to donate socks, please see someone who is a Republican Women member.

Armed Forces Day 2011 – “United in Strength.” Thank you to those who served and are serving so that we might live in a free country.

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department — the Department of Defense.
