HAPPY 241ST ARMY BIRTHDAY!
« on: June 14, 2016, 10:54:11 AM »

I am proud to have served my time in the United States Army!!!

Quote
Two hundred forty-one years ago, our nation's leaders established the Continental Army. Today, the Army is the strategic landpower of the joint force; called upon to prevent, shape, and win against our adversaries.

The U.S. Army's 241st Birthday is June 14, 2016, a day we celebrate the Total Army Force comprised of multi-component Soldiers and Department of the Army Civilians and their contributions to national defense. The American Soldier trains, deploys, engages, and destroys enemies of the United States in combat operations as the world's premier land force.

Below is the 'traditional' Army 'song' followed by an add on that interesting enough even mentions Custer!

well it certainly wasn't one from my Army days.  Had the neighbor kid grab me one a few years ago.
Although i do have a couple of sets of green fatigues...One pair all starched up yet.
