Happy Birthday US Army
Before the date changes here I want to say happy 236th birthday to the US Army. My family has a long tradition of service with the US army dating back to when we got here in the 19th century. Both of my grandfathers were US Army veterans, as was my father and most of my uncles on both sides(although one great uncle and one uncle were in the Air Force and one uncle was in the Navy). Now my oldest daughter is in the Army reserve, she leaves for basic training in a little over three weeks.
