On May 1, the VFW leads ceremonies to recognize Loyalty to America Day when all citizens are encouraged to reflect on the freedoms they have, to support democracy, and to honor those who protect America. Loyalty Day began as "Americanization Day” in 1921 to counter the Communists’ May 1 celebration of the Russian Revolution.
