Happy Armed Forces Day

“Happy Armed Forces Day!”  A 23 character Tweet (Twitter limits posts to 140 characters) kind of does it.  571 words kind of does it better.  Kind of.  The fact is, a glossary doesn’t contain a single word or a series of distinct meaningful elements of speech to properly express the thanks due our members of the military.

This particular Red Nation Rising Blog Post is inspired by a single Tweet about Armed Forces Day by the Tweet of prolific Red Nation Rising Contributor @teaparty321.

I had no idea today was Armed Forces Day.  Not a clue.

Fortunately, @teaparty321 Tweeted: “Happy Armed Forces Day To All The Military Personnel Out There. #RedNationRising”  and I saw the Tweet.  First, thank you for using the hashtag.  That’s how I catch a lot of information these days.

The hashtag on Twitter has become kind of like a cultured and curated news channel of its own.  It spreads the Red Nation Rising message of uniting Conservatives, Centrists, Libertarians and Patriots against the Blue Dems and RINOS.  It’s also a way to communicate with each other.  Spreading the warmest wishes owed to our Armed Forces is perfectly in line with that message!

Hopefully, the genuine grassroots gratitude to our military on Armed Forces Day will spread.

Secondly, thank you, @teaparty321, for Tweeting out that today was Armed Forces Day!  The rapidly growing Red Nation Rising grassroots, organic movement has many, many veterans and current personnel supporting the movement.  Which makes me emotional.  Very emotional!

Armed Forces Day [the next two paragraphs are from Department of Defense website] and its history goes back to President Harry S. Truman.  Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.  The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

I’ve written this post as quick as I could in response to a Tweet which informed today was the day to THANK our military members.  A quick aside: they should stop calling it the Department of “Defense” and go back to Department of War!!  War is what happens when you mess with good Americans and USA!  The current regime of Blue Dems have messed with good Americans and Red Nation Rising is bringing war!  We are social warriors!!

THANK YOU!  Thank you, all, for serving our country.

A special thanks to all the amazing Vets and everyone else supporting Red Nation Rising.  I get some messages from you which humble me to no end.  As I mentioned above, it’s incredibly emotional to read your profiles and how you’ve supported America, and now you support the Red Nation Rising movement.  We are going to win back America.

Our Armed Forces are strong and resilient.  Our warriors are prepared to meet any challenge.

Whenever a Vet uses the #RedNationRising hashtag I feel I’m not worthy.  Because they do so much.  Including inspiring this blog post.

Fact is, there are no words… I can’t thank you enough.  Red Nation Rising for you.

Thank you.  Happy Armed Services Day.  #RedNationRising
