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.

ARMAD helps teach our youth about the sacrifices present and past generations have made to keep us free, and America strong. It is important that we remind future generations of what price veterans paid for our Country.
Amateur Radio is a great hobby, and a strong tool to use for public service. Using Amateur Radio helps to develop communication skills, knowledge of geography, and allows one to meet new friends worldwide. It allows us to provide emergency communication in times of disasters.
