Celebrated in the U.S. on the first Friday of June of each year, National
Doughnut Day was created by
The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938
to honor those of their
members who served doughnuts to soldiers
during
World War I. Their goal was to help people in need during the
Great Depression
. On this day many doughnut shops will be offering
free doughnuts.

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single
holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military
members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson
announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace
separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.

The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of
the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.
