Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. This year it is celebrated on Saturday, May 19, 2018. Thanks to President Harry S. Truman, it’s a day to pay special tribute to the men and women of the Armed Forces. President Truman led the effort to establish a holiday in order for citizens to unite and to honor our military heroes for their patriotic service in support of the United States of America. Although, originally, there were single day celebrations for each branch of the military, the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force; this format changed on August 21, 1949, when Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of Armed Forces Day. Stemming from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense, the annual celebration now commemorates all branches of the military during one solitary day.
Airmen, get ready the Operational Camouflage Pattern, or OCP uniform is on its way. The uniform provides better fit and functionality while recognizing our warfighting excellence and historic ties with the Army. See story for more:

1st Lt. Tinashe Machona, a public affairs officer with the 161st Air Refueling Wing, receives the Airman to Airman Coin from 1st. Sgt. Rachel Landegent, operations first sergeant for the 161st Air Refueling Wing, during a ceremony at the Goldwater Air National Guard Base, May 5. Landegent explained that Machona’s story of perseverance, dedication, and selfless service inspires her, and she wanted to present the coin to him as a way of showing her respect and admiration of his journey and willingness to be a part of the Arizona Air National Guard. The Airman to Airman coin is presented to an Airman to acknowledge their contributions or helping lead and inspire others. In turn, the recipient is charged with passing along the coin to someone who inspires them during their career. Each coin is individually numbered and can be traced back to others who have possessed it. Currently there are only 100 coins in circulation throughout the Air Force. #AirmanToAirmanCoin
