‘Teamed For Defense' – Armed Forces Day
A little competition can be good for performance – but big jobs
Coming together to make a big impact is the American way. The first
Armed Forces Day theme was ‘Teamed For Defense' celebrating the
unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense. In
that spirit, we invite all Americans to ‘team up' and support our
Armed Forces Day was created to replace separate days celebrating the
Army, Navy, and Air Force. Marines still have their own day – but
today's Armed Forces Day celebrates all the brave Americans who serve,
and have served, our country.
The awesome power of these forces is undeniable. So is the power of
America coming together. This Armed Forces Day, we salute the members
of our Acceptance Insurance family who have served. And we invite you
to join your fellow Americans in coming together to support veterans
by contributing to a veterans' organization.
