The period of 12-18 MAY 2013 will be celebrated as Armed Forces Week. Civilians in Central Kentucky are invited to join the Bluegrass Military Affairs Coalition (BMAC) to celebrate the unity and common purposes of the United States Armed Forces, and to honor dedicated American men and women in uniform who serve selflessly to preserve democracy and freedom at home and around the world in times of war and peace.
Armed Forces Week is an annual public education event by the Bluegrass Military Affairs Coalition to increase public awareness about the United States Armed Forces and to express appreciation to the men and women currently in defense of the U.S. Constitution, against all enemies foreign and domestic, and to support the American way of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Anywhere in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, if your business, civic, military support or Veterans service organization wants to inquire about hosting or sponsoring an event during the designated week, contact BMAC.
