Honoring Those During This Memorial Weekend

Often you will hear…Happy Memorial Day! But, what is the true meaning of Memorial Day?

In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, though it is still often called Decoration Day. A da on which those who died in active military service are remembered. We observe it on the last day Monday of the month of May.

So take time this weekend to pause. Remember our fallen heroes!

Welcome Fellow Crafters!

Welcome to AAUSS!
We have learned that many of you registering to adopt a service member are from a closed Facebook craft group. We are excited to have you. As you know, there are many of you in this group and MANY of you have registered with us quickly. The email you will receive will say that it will take about a week to receive a service member’s name to support. Please know that this may take longer depending on the number of service members who register each day.

We adopt out service members as quickly as they register and have reached out to our connections to share AAUSS with our deployed troops.

Please have patience with our volunteer staff during this time as we work in the order we receive supporter registrations. You can check out our FAQ tab to learn more about AAUSS and how to support your service member.

Thanks,
Debbie
AAUSS President

Armed Forces Day

President Harry S. 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.
