May is a time of reflection, gratitude, and celebration, dedicated to honoring the sacrifices and contributions of our military personnel, past and present.

What is Military Appreciation Month?

Established by Congress in 1999, Military Appreciation Month is an opportunity for the nation to express gratitude to the members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines, Space Force, and National Guard, and their families. Throughout the month of May, various military-related anniversaries and events are commemorated.

While the entirety of the month is dedicated to honoring both past and present military members along with their families, it also features various distinct military holidays dispersed throughout the month including Loyalty Day, VE Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Mother’s Day, and Armed Forces Day, leading up to the solemn observance of Memorial Day.

Beyond serving as a time for festivities and remembrance, Military Appreciation Month serves a deeper purpose.
