We join the nation in celebrating Women’s History Month throughout the month of March 2018. Here’s what’s being said:
Dept. of Defense: “Both in uniform and through the civilian sector, American mothers, daughters, sisters and wives have selflessly served to defend and protect the land of the free and home of the brave.”
ALNAV 007/18 encourages participation in all the heritage celebrations and special observances throughout the year.
ALCOAST 081/18 encourages all Coast Guard units and commands to take time to honor the accomplishments and contributions that women have made and continue to make to our Service, our Nation and the world.
NNOA joins the Department of Defense and the Nation in celebration of National African American History Month. Together we recognize the service and sacrifices of African Americans and celebrate their contributions to the defense of our Nation.
For nearly a century, Americans have remembered those who served our country in uniform on Nov. 11 – first as Armistice Day, then as Veterans Day since 1954. We join the nation honoring and thanking our veterans for their service.
The National Naval Officers Association joins the nation in helping the U.S. Marines mark 242 years of warfighting excellence. As stated by Gen. Robert B. Neller in his message from the Commandant of the Marine Corps, “We value the sacrifices and contributions of every Marine and Sailor, as well as our family members without whose support we would not be able to accomplish our mission.”
Below Gen. Neller and Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps Ronald Green speak to Marines and Sailors about the importance of teamwork to the success of our Corps.
The 242nd birthday of our Navy on Oct. 13 honors the brave men and women who conduct a wide range of combat, training, humanitarian, rescue and other missions worldwide, protecting our interests, promoting our security, and helping to shape our nation’s history and culture.
