Amateur Radio Military Appreciation Day
Saturday, May 26th
Join us live as we speak to Emery McClendon.
Amateur Radio Military Appreciation Day, also known as ARMAD, is observed on Saturday, May 26th, 2018. It has always been observed 9 days before the first Monday in June.
“ARMAD is an annual NON – POLITICAL Amateur Radio Public Service project that stands for Amateur Radio Military Appreciation Day. We work with National Military Appreciation Month during the Month of May. We also provide other events, and work with other groups as requested during the year.
We ask Amateur Radio Operators from around the world to team up during this effort to allow the people from our communities to gather at public locations such as shopping centers, parks, VA hospitals, and sporting events to express verbal positive support “LIVE” over two way radio for members of the Military, Veterans, Reserves, National Guard, Retired, Coalition Forces, First Responders, and Military Support Groups.
Many of us have friends, relatives, and neighbors that are active duty, and past members of the armed forces. ARMAD gives us the chance to support one another, and to express our thanks and appreciation to those that sacrifice and serve in the Armed Forces.”

8 Specif Proposals to offer a ‘better deal’ in public safety and community police relations.
1. End police enforcement of regulations sucy as smoking bans and children’s lemonade stands as well as any unnecessary focus on minor infractions that can escalate into major incidents.
2. Provide officers with special training to identiy and handle people with autism, Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive disabilities, because people with those disabilities can respond unpredictably – and incidents have resulted in inappropriate police responses.
3. Increase use of body cameras by officeers.
4. Prevent ‘SWATing’ to remove the threat of civiians incuring physical harm and property damage when police departments are pranked into mistakenly dispatching tactical units when no threat exists.
5. Disarm federal agencies lacking direct law enforcment responsibilities in teach gun safety to the public.
7. Encourage local houses of worship to sponsor ‘First Responder Sundays’ in which police, fire, and rescue personel attend in uniform and programming is geared toward strengthening community ties to them.
8. Establish a ‘Presidential Medal for Exemplary Law Emfocement,’ based on community recommendation, to honor acts of extreme kindnedss, compassion and service by first responders.”
