Obama, embassies ignore Armed Forces Day, celebrate ‘International Day Against Homophobia Or Transphobia’

Armed Forces DayIt seems Obama really doesn’t think much of those who serve in our military.  Saturday, May 17, is Armed Forces Day — a day created by Harry Truman in 1949 to celebrate all the branches of the military.
