Working in the healthcare profession is an honor and privilege.

To serve in the armed forces of one’s country is also an honor and privilege.

 

 

So to do both- to serve as a physician or nurse in the Armed Forces- deserves special recognition.

Armed Forces Day has been observed yearly, the third Saturday in May, since 1950.
