Time To Recognize

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.

We moved really fast on the list in the last two weeks. One week we were number 13 and the next week DH was telling me that we have housing! So hopefully when you guys get here you wont have to wait that long. We are actually living right next to Shadow Mountain in Joshua Heights, apparently they are the newest housing. I can't wait!! I'll keep you updated!
I love Real Madrid, my family are die hard fans of them. I only got to go to one match but I loved every second of it :)
