On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department -- the Department of Defense.
Each of the military leagues and orders was asked to drop sponsorship of its specific service day in order to celebrate the newly announced Armed Forces Day. The Army, Navy and Air Force leagues adopted the newly formed day. The Marine Corps League declined to drop support for Marine Corps Day but supports Armed Forces Day, too.
The first Armed Forces Day, 67 years ago on May 20th, 1950, was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions, and air shows. In Washington D.C., 10,000 troops of all branches of the military, cadets, and veterans marched past the President and his party. In Berlin, 1,000 U.S. troops paraded for the German citizens at Templehof Airfield. In New York City, an estimated 33,000 participants initiated Armed Forces Day "under an air cover of 250 military planes of all types."
In the harbors across the country were the famed mothballed "battlewagons" of World War II, the Missouri, the New Jersey, the North Carolina, and the Iowa, all open for public inspection. Precision flying teams dominated the skies as tracking radar were exhibited on the ground. All across the country, the American people joined together to honor the Armed Forces.
Armed Forces Day is celebrated annually on the third Saturday of May. Armed Forces Week begins on the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May.
Because of their unique training schedules, National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in May.

We frequently hear good things about Chef Andy Mueller and Galley 57 Supper Club, and we'd like to share an example with you:
"My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at Galley 57. Not only was the food excellent, the wait staff was courteous and attentive. What made it even better was that Chef Andy took the time to ask us -- and guests at every table around us -- how the food was and if we were enjoying our dining experience. He did this at a time when he was very busy." ~ Kurt Rosi
We asked Chef Andy why he takes the time to personally greet his guests:
There are many reasons why I visit tables on a nightly basis, and as often as I can. Guests usually arrive in waves throughout the evening. Obviously, when it's crazy busy, I can't chit-chat in the dining room, but there are always blips of time that allow me to do what I call a "walkabout." It's a window of opportunity for me to jump off the line and see what's poppin' in the front of the house.
Here are some of my reasons:
1. The most important reason is simply to say "Thank You." People work hard for their money and have many dining options in the area. When they decide to visit Galley 57, it means a lot to me and I simply want to say thanks.
2. I stand by my food, service, and atmosphere, and I want people to know that I am very proud of what we do as a team. I love to hear the feedback about our service. We have an outstanding team at Galley 57, and I want people to know they made the right choice when they decided to visit.
3. It gives me a chance to meet new people and say hello to people I know. The key to success in this industry is based upon great service, so I want to make sure we are all doing our part to serve every guest the best way we know how.
4. It gives me a chance for immediate feedback. We don't have all the answers, and guests have great ideas that I like to hear. We have made many improvements and added different menu offerings based on guests' suggestions and ideas. On the rare occasion when a guest is not completely satisfied with their entree, I can do something about it immediately.
5. I firmly believe that people in this community will support a hard working owner who is working hard for them. My name is on the sign, and my reputation as a chef is my currency. Guests need to know that I am directly involved with their dining experience; with their food, their service, and their overall experience.
6. I Love to do it! It's something I've always done, and I will continue to do it on a daily basis. When I see the smiles on the faces of satisfied guests, and the role I play in creating memories in people's lives - it's difficult to find a more rewarding work experience anywhere - in any industry. A satisfied guest is more valuable than any paycheck I could ever receive.
Hours: Tuesday-Thursday, 4:00pm-9:00pm , Friday & Saturday 4pm-10pm

A split-annuity strategy involves purchasing two types of annuity contracts: immediate and deferred.
The immediate annuity would provide a current income stream during the early years of retirement, and the deferred annuity would have the potential to provide a future income stream.
An immediate fixed annuity earns a guaranteed rate of return, and immediately pays a regular income for the duration specified in the contract. Meanwhile, the funds in a deferred fixed annuity accumulate tax deferred until they are needed.
Once the immediate fixed annuity has been depleted, the deferred fixed annuity can be used to generate a regular income stream. Of course, any earnings withdrawn from the deferred annuity would...
