SAN ANTONIO – The President of the United States has proclaimed May as National Military Appreciation Month to remind Americans of the importance of the U.S. Armed Forces in history.

It is a symbol of unity, honoring today’s military men and women, veterans and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of freedom.

The U.S. Army Installation Management Command salutes those who serve – their strength, commitment and unwavering service to this nation. This year’s theme is “The United States Armed Forces: The Strength of the Red, White and Blue.”

Throughout this month-long observance, which is focused on the theme of strength, IMCOM is highlighting events promoting fitness and team building – some of the pillars of resiliency, according to organizers.

National Military Appreciation Month is an opportunity for Army leadership at every level to raise awareness of service members’ contributions both on and off post, as well as deepen partnerships that support resilience and enhance the total wellness of the force.
