May is a month to remember our Fallen Heroes, our Surviving Veterans, & Currently Serving Military

Updated: May 4


May 2, 2022: We are always to remember and honor the courage, valor, and sacrifices made by the brave men and women who have given so much to protect our freedom and sovereignty in days gone by.


Today, more than ever, our freedom and rights are under assault by the same lineage of tyrants who targeted and attacked our inalienable God-given rights in the past. Honoring those who protected these freedoms (often with their lives) is essential; protecting their legacy and sacrifices made in the past will require a display of similar courage and sacrifice by all men and women today.


Please do all you can to acknowledge, celebrate, and honor our surviving veterans and active servicemen and women.


Please do all you can to fight back against today's tyrants disguised as benevolent politicians, media pundits, and bogus activists.


Today's fight against tyranny involves a fight against choreographed disinformation and nefarious actors (NGO's, global corporatists, technocrats, media propagandists, and big pharma to name a few) attempting to undo everything our military veterans did to protect and preserve freedom in eras gone by. Honor the sacrifices made by our military by rejecting modern-day tyrants who are doing everything in their might to denigrate everything our military (past and present) symbolizes.

Celebrated on the third Saturday of every May, Armed Forces Day honors Americans serving in the military.

May 30: Memorial Day

Landing on the final Monday of May, Memorial Day is the most widely recognized holiday out of the May military-themed observances. It began after the Civil War to remember the soldiers who fell on both sides during the war, but grew to commemorate all Americans who died serving in the military.
