Lt. Stephanie Morales, a 2012 graduate from Freeport high school in Freeport, and a 2017 graduate from Virginia Tech, is proud to serve her country this Armed Forces Day as the flag aid for U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet.

The month of May marks Military Appreciation Month, and includes Armed Forces Day, which honors those currently serving in the military, and Memorial Day, which honors the sacrifices of those who died while serving their country.

Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the 3rd Saturday of May and stems from the unification of the armed forces under the Department of Defense. U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet supports U.S. Southern Command’s joint and combined military operations by employing maritime forces in cooperative maritime security operations to maintain access, enhance interoperability and build enduring partnerships in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American region.
