The City of Taylor and the Taylor Veterans Museum Commission celebrates Armed Forces Day on a Saturday every May. Usually about 150 attend the event, which is held in the Cameron Priebe Plaza outside in front of the Taylor Police Department (but was moved indoors for 2015 and 2016 because of the weather).
While the event celebrates all veterans, each year the commission focuses on specific wars or eras. In 2016, it focused on Afghanistan- and Iraq-era campaign veterans. Each veteran of those campaigns -- or their families -- were awarded a medal and a letter from the City of Taylor.
