    Rundown of Heritage months by month

    I am trying to remember which month is which for "History/heritage" by the month for the mil. I remember Feb is Black history, March is womans and iirc July is Pacific islander. What are the rest?

    And yes trying Google and bing didn't help out.

    Maybe you just didn't Google the right terms

    Can you google the answer to why life is so unfair?

    That will save us a lot of time in here.

    That's probably why you didn't find it...the military doesn't have it's own months specifically FOR the military, to my knowledge, they just celebrate the national ones along with everybody else.

    Likewise, you're probably not going to find Independence Day specifically FOR the military...but, you might find the military celebrating the same Independence Day as everybody else

    Well going by that above chart, which is it that the military celebrates via the Heritage committee for October. I know it ain't Italian Americans. That is what i am trying to find. I know when i was in, each and every month was a separate "history or Heritage month" that we celebrated, and that chart does not answer my question.

    Your local EEO leader would be able to tell you. Doubtful that it is public information (not that it is a secret or anything like that). I bet some commands have certain observances they stress over others. I was in 22 years and I can tell you I never saw a flyer for "National Oceans Month". Safe bet to add any observance that includes a minority or culture.
