Happy Birthday ARMY!
So here is the Technical stuff The United States Army is the main branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for land-based military operations. It is the largest and oldest established branch of the U.S. military, and is one of seven U.S. uniformed services. The modern Army has its roots in the Continental Army which was formed on 14 June 1775 before the establishment of the United States, to meet the demands of the American Revolutionary War. The Congress of the Confederation after the end of the revolutionary war to replace the disbanded Continental Army. The Army considers itself to be descended from the Continental Army and thus dates its inception from the origins of that force. officially created the United States Army on 3 June 1784.
June 14th is a big day two holidays in one, Flag Day and the US Army’s Birthday. This year the Army is 236 years old, wow! The first Army was formed in 1775, when the Continental Congress endorsed enlistment of riflemen to serve the United Colonies for one year. I think I am a little biases considering I am a Army Wife, but I am proud that the US Army is the main branch of the United States Armed Forces. I am sure if you ask the other branches they will say they are the main branch but we have the most members and oldest established branch of the U.S. military.
The Army dates back to the Revolutionary War to the current operations taking place around the world, our Soldiers have a deep vow to the Army’s core values and beliefs. I look at my husband and when he puts his uniform on everyday to go to work he makes me so proud to be a Army Wife. When I go to Fort Bragg, and I see these soldiers training and working hard, from different MOS, they make a difference and flows up through the different army branches. I am so thankful to be part of this organization.
We can’t forget the supporters of the Army, Army families and Army civilians who are excelling at helping support these defenders of freedom. Without their support the Army wouldn’t be as successful as they are today.
I want to thank all the soldiers and their families past and present who have gone through the hardships of these wars and trainings. I am very lucky to live in this wonderful place called The United States of America and I am proud to call myself a Army Spouse!
