US Army Celebrates 236 Years of Service

The US Army put up a page to celebrate protecting America for over 200 years:

Two hundred and thirty-six years ago, the United States Army was established to defend our Nation. From the Revolutionary War to the current operations taking place around the world, our Soldiers remain Army Strong with a deep commitment to our core values and beliefs. This 236th birthday commemorates America’s Army - Soldiers, Families and Civilians - who are achieving a level of excellence that is truly Army Strong. Being Army Strong goes beyond physical endurance and mental preparedness. It encompasses an indomitable spirit, and high ethical and moral values. These are not only desirable traits in a person, but in a Nation that wishes to live up to the ideals and vision of its founders. We are “America’s Army: The Strength of the Nation.”

There are more videos at the Army Birthday page.

I’m so proud to have been a part of them for 17 years. And there was even a present under the tree, no more berets!

As a 15 year and combat vet... (Below threshold)

As a 15 year and combat veteran I don't think I've ever been more proud of my Army. As a former member of the 10th Special Forces Group I also am pleased they've decided to drop the beret. Hell, many of my teammates and I used to joke about needing to add a visor and ear flaps to them, 40 years ago!

I wore the uniform... (Below threshold)

I wore the uniform with PRIDE, yet when I see these young men and women serving today,I feel humbled.

What an honor it would be to wear it again with them.
