When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.

History of NMAM:

NMAM started as a simple idea; to gather America around its military family to honor, remember, recognize and appreciate those who have served and those now serving and to know the history behind it all. May was chosen because it already has many days to recognize the U.S. military’s achievements.

In 1999, the late Senator John McCain introduced formal legislation to designate the month of May as National Military Appreciation Month. Both the Senate and House of Representatives adopted resolutions calling for Americans to recognize and honor U.S. Service Members during NMAM. These resolutions also urge the President to issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe NMAM.

Because most holidays commemorating historical military events have become little more than three-day weekends lacking focus on their original purpose, this month reminds Americans of the sacrifices and the history we have been privileged to participate in since the nation’s birth. During the month of May, the military is encouraged to support local engagements designed to draw public attention and illustrate public support and appreciation and thanks to the military family.
