What Is Military Appreciation Month?

Craig Emerson | Pali Mountain

In 1999, Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month.  The event provides an opportunity for the nation to publicly demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices of our service members -- past and present.

It gives us time to not only give thanks for those who have served in the U.S. military, but to reflect on the major role the armed forces play in the growth of our country.

Many locations also recognize Military Appreciation Day. A time to honor your local active duty and veteran community.  Businesses also typically offer discounts to service members.

In honor of our Military and Veterans, Pali Retreat will be hosting a Military/Patriot Weekend Retreat. Grab your Battle Buddy! Call to muster in the mountains. This action packed weekend is designed to bring our Active Duty Military, Reservists, Veterans, and Patriots together for a weekend of camaraderie and fun. Some of the weekend fun will include ropes courses, zipline, paintball, tomahawk throwing, archery, and much more.

If you are unable to attend or know of deserving hero please consider sponsoring them to attend.  Pali has a waitlist of deserving active duty, reservists, and veterans that would love to attend.  Please consider sponsoring a cabin or a veteran. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
