Thousands Celebrate Armed Forces Day

Thousands came out for Armed Forces Day this weekend at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

The event featured performances by the Thunderbirds, the Air Force's Demonstration Squadron, and the Army's Golden Knights Parachute Demonstration Team.

There was also a wide variety of airplanes and military ground vehicles available for public inspection.

President Harry Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to recognize and thank all members of the military for their patriotic service.
