Armed Forces Day

Americans have honored the Armed Forces on the third Saturday of each May since 1921 when Woodrow Wilson signed this into law.

This Saturday is that special day.

If you are a steady reader of Lazy Bee Farm, you know how deeply proud we are of our special Airman. Rev. Lin, Blue Star Mothers chaplain, states:

As the mothers, fathers, family, and friends of this proud and outstanding fighting force, what better way to honor our heroes than through prayer to the Almighty?   May we stand together this Saturday, May 21, 2011, as the enduring force of strength behind our military men and women ~ lifting our voices in prayer ~ giving faithful word to the Almighty for their protection, thanksgiving for their well being, petition for their wisdom, and appreciation for their service.   God Bless the Men and Women of Our Armed Forces!!! 

My Airman
Isn't he handsome??

My Airman has made this vow:

I am an American Airman.

I am a Warrior.
I have answered my Nation’s call.
I am an American Airman.
My mission is to Fly, Fight, and Win.
I am faithful to a Proud Heritage,
A Tradition of Honor,
And a Legacy of Valor.
I am an American Airman.
Guardian of Freedom and Justice,
My Nation’s Sword and Shield,
Its Sentry and Avenger.
I defend my Country with my Life.
I am an American Airman.
Wingman, Leader, Warrior.
I will never leave an Airman behind,
I will never falter,
And I will not fail.

Will you join us this Saturday in remembering all our Service People at home and abroad -- in safety and in danger??
