The U.S. Army was established June 14, 1775. This year marks 244 years of continuous service to the great nation while commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
This year’s birthday theme is “America’s Army: Honoring the Call to Service from D-Day to Today.” This theme allows the Army to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of its total force.
Happy 243th birthday — to the men and women, active, reserve, guard, and veterans, thank you for your service, from one Army veteran to you.
