May is National Military Appreciation Month — a time for U.S. citizens to honor the service members of the country’s armed forces and veterans. During the month of May, American Airlines joins forces with the USO to honor and celebrate the service members who protect the country with the Every Moment Counts campaign.
Take the time to celebrate true American heroes on these national days of observance during National Military Appreciation Month:
May 1: Loyalty Day
May 4–10: Public Service Recognition Week
May 8: Victory in Europe Day
May 9: Military Spouse Appreciation Day
May 17: Armed Forces Day
May 26: Memorial Day
Through the Every Moment Counts initiative, the USO hopes to highlight the everyday moments that matter most for our troops and their families, by spreading awareness of the troops’ commitment to our nation and offering gratitude for their selflessness and dedication.
Your ongoing support of the USO makes a significant, positive and lasting difference in the lives of our troops and military families and assures them that you are always by their side in times of war and peace.
If you would like to join us by making a donation to the USO in support of our troops and their families, we will reward your generosity with 15 AAdvantage® miles — instead of 10 — for each dollar donated through American’s Miles in Support of All Who Serve program from May 1-31. Your contribution has immense power to help those whose lives have been altered profoundly by their dedication and service to our country.
Make a donation today and earn a chance to make history. With your donation you can also link to show your support by virtually signing a huge, custom-made Every Moment Counts flag. You can help the USO break the Guinness World Record for the number of signatures on a single flag. Visit uso.org/moments for more information.
