Happy 244th Birthday To US Army!

The U.S. Army celebrates it’s 244th birthday today. The foundation of the Army dates back to June 14, 1775 — making it older than the country it serves.

Today, we celebrate the Second Continental Congress’ establishment of a unifying force, bringing together the 13 colonies to defeat the British and eventually grant U.S. independence. (RELATED: Retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor: The ‘Future For The Left’ Is ‘Demographic Change’)

To this day, American soldiers serve under some of the oldest units that date back to the Revolutionary War.
