Honor Our Armed Forces

Armed Forces day was created on 31 August 1949 as President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank military members for their patriotic service in support of the republic and national interests and as an undeniable fact of American life.

On 19 May 2017, President Donald Trump reaffirmed the Armed Forces Day holiday, marking the 70th anniversary since the creation of the Department of Defense. (source: Wikipedia)

It is our honor to Never Forget the sacrifices made for our freedom.  This annual event invites all to join in the celebration!   

It is important that our Veterans and military personnel know how much we appreciate the labor they do of service for our country.  It is one of B-17 Alliances ambitions to always honor those who served valiantly for our country.  We hope you’ll join us in this celebration.
