Happy Birthday US Army & Happy Flag Day!

Since its inception on 14 June 1775, over a year before the Declaration of Independence, the United States Army has played a vital role in the growth and development of our nation. Soldiers have fought more than ten wars, from the American Revolution through the Cold War, the Gulf War, to the current War on Terrorism. This 231st Birthday is a recognition of The Army’s history, traditions, and service to the Nation, a Call To Duty, 231 Years of Service to Our Nation.

I have been proud to serve with 3/5 Cavalry Regiment, 4/64 Armored Regiment, 1/504 Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Psychological Operations Group (Airborne), also had the privelage of being attached to some other extraordinary units who exemplify prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps to accomplish the mission at hand.

Today is also Flag Day! On 14 June 1777, The United States officially adopted the Stars and Stripes as the National Flag. For all United States citizens, this is an important patriotic event to remember and show respect for our flag.

I wish all Soldiers and Civilians throughout the Army, Happy 231st Birthday and Happy Flag Day to all!

Shouldn't this be a paid holiday for me or something? Sheesh!
