Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Day of the Deployed

This day honors all service members who have been deployed in service of our country. The day also acknowledges the sacrifices that military families make during deployment.

The first National Day of the Deployed was observed in 2006, when North Dakota announced a proclamation for the day, thanks to Shelle Michaeles Aberle, who petitioned Governor John Hoevento with the idea. October 26th was chosen for the date in honor of Shelle's cousin,  LTC David Hosna, who had been deployed to Iraq (the day was Hosna's birthday).

By 2012, every state in the US was observing this day.
