"My father served as a para trooper in WWII, and one of my nephews has joined the military. Thank you for serving our Country, y'all!"
"Hi there! My name is David Adams. I joined the Air Force back in 1971 and retired in 1974. I know I didn't serve very long before I retired, but I was given the choise not go, so I chose to stay and take care of my wife and daughter. Anyhow, I served on the Search and Rescue and aircraft maintenance team. So it was my job to make sure that the helicopters, that soldiers who went over seas had to pilot, and the T37 training planes, were in great working order. My team consisted of myself and five other men who worked together as a single unit to get the job done. We had to completely take the planes apart to inspect them. This was a hard job, but a job I enjoyed doing. I'm not the only man in my family to serve my country."
U.S. Navy was founded in 1798, because of the war between France ad Britain. During the Civil War it was used to form a blockade against the Confederates, cutting off trades supplies by water. The Navy was expanded by Roosevelt in 1906, and continues being one of the Nations strongest forces in the U.S. Military. (148, 509)
The National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics was created in 1915 in hopes to get airplanes into battle during WWI. (399).
Established in 1775, the Marines are our "nation's rapid response force" ("History and Heritage").
In 1942 Americans created the "Boeing B17F capable of flying a bomb load of 6,000 pounds for 1,300 miles . . . They were able to conduct extensive bombing missions over Germany . . . with much less danger of being shot down" (624). This was probably the biggest fight to date for American airmen, and proved just how much air support was needed for battle. The U.S. Air Force was not officially established until 1947 when Truman signed the National Security Act (648).
"On August 4 1790 . . . President George Washington signed the Tariff Act that authorized the construction of ten vessels to enforce federal tariff and trade laws and to prevent smuggling" ("U.S. Coast Guard History").
"We defend the homeland. We enforce Federal laws on the high seas, the nation's coastal waters and its inland waterways" ("U.S. Coast Guard History").

The History and Roles of the U.S. Army. Military.com. 4 November 2016.
U.S. Army was officially established in 1775. It was "originally formed to protect the freedom of the first 13 colonies, the Army has evolved and grown from this small militia force into the world's premier fighting force" ("The History and Roles of the U.S. Army").
Just like this blanket it takes each department of the Military coming together to form a complete covering to protect it's people. So "Thank You!" to every man and woman who have done their job so faithfully to protect us.
In 1945, four years after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the Marines went to war on the Island of Iwo Jima, in the Pacific Ocean. Here is where the Marines showed their true strength and determination, in a battle against the Japanese that lasted 36 days.
