Governor Doug Ducey issued the following statement:

Hello —

Today, we pay special tribute to the brave servicemen and women — both at home and abroad — of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Each soldier, sailor, airman, marine and coast guardsman faithfully serves to protect our national security and safeguard our freedom.

Armed Forces Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the countless sacrifices our servicemen, women and their families make in support of this nation.

We honor and thank them for their patriotism, service and sacrifice. We owe them and their families a great debt of gratitude.
