Today is not just National Flag Day, it also marks the 235th Army . There will be celebrations around the U.S. today for the two events.
From the Revolutionary War to the current operations taking place around the world, especially Iraq and Afghanistan, the US Soldiers remain Army Strong with a deep commitment to their core values and beliefs. This 235th 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.
Happy 235th Birthday US Army and Happy Flag Day!!
