DoD observes Constitution Day, Citizenship Day

By DCMA Public Affairs

The Department of Defense will observe Constitution Day and Citizenship Day Sept. 17 and Constitution Week Sept. 16-22.

Congressional legislation enacted by U.S. Public Law 108-447 Dec. 8, 2004, designated Sept. 17 each year as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day.

Sept. 17 was selected as the date to observe Constitution Day because delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall signed the U.S. Constitution Sept. 17, 1787. Citizenship Day focuses national attention on the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizens, both native-born and naturalized.

DCMA employees can gain more awareness about the U.S. Constitution, how their government is constructed and the origin of Constitution Day and Citizenship Day by taking a short online multi-media course here.
