National Supreme Sacrifice Day

National Supreme Sacrifice Day is a holiday that’s observed annually on March 18th and pays homage to those men and women who have sacrificed their lives for their country.

It’s also a day that honors the people who sacrificed their lives for their communities or for their neighbors. It’s all of our duties to at least take a few moments out of our days to recognize what these men and women have given for the safety of their communities and their country.

The History of National Supreme Sacrifice Day

This is a holiday that’s been observed since the early 2000s, but no one really knows who started it or when it was started. But we do know that it’s been observed faithfully since at least 2004 or 2005.
