Cpl Christopher Levi will be coming home on “Armed Forces Day” / May 16th. This is a very poignant/fitting day as it was designated by then President Harry S. Truman (“the buck stops here”) for citizens to come together and express gratitude/patriotic pride to our men/women/neighbors who have chosen to protect and defend us, our Constitution/written law of government and country in service in the military. This year’s motto/focus/theme of Armed Forces Day: “UNITED IN STRENGTH”. http://www.defense.gov/afd/
Come out and unite in strength to welcome home this brave young man and his family.
