Military Appreciation Month is under way. Organizers for National Military Appreciation Month are asking Americans to show their appreciation for the military by displaying the American flag and the POW/MIA flag May 1 through Flag Day on June 14. In 1999, a resolution was passed in Congress proclaiming May as National Military Appreciation Month. The month remembers those who gave their lives in defense of the nation's freedom and honors those Americans who have served their country, and the men and women now serving in uniform on active duty, in the National Guard and Reserve and all of their families. More than 80 million Americans have served in uniform in more than 225 years of American history.

May includes Public Service Recognition Week (May 5 - 11), Loyalty Day (May 1), VE Day (May 8), Military Spouse Day (May 9), Armed Forces Day (May 17) and Memorial Day (May 30).

Event organizers are asking all Americans to remember, honor and appreciate the military by displaying U.S. flags and yellow ribbons on cars, homes, businesses and in classrooms.

For more information on National Military Appreciation Month and community events, see the official website at http://www.nmam.org.

Hi Melissa,

Thank for letting us know about Military Appreciation Month. Although it feels like the war is over, there are still thousands of military men and women stationed in Iraq as the country transitions to a new government.

We indeed have much to be grateful for-- especially for the courage and dedication of our troops.

I thought I'd share this neat e-card that I came across a while ago during the peak of the Iraq War. It's called "Prayer for the Military."
