It's my birthday today and the US. Army's! As a former soldier, and flag day guy I have some trivia....On 14 June 1775, Congress authorized an army to be formed of 10 companies of "expert riflemen" of light infantry mainly to deal with the English siege at Boston. Too bad our guys did not have M14's....the war would have ended much sooner. On 14 June 1777 the stars and stripes were adopted as the flag of the United States of America.
Happy 236th Birthday, on this day back in 1775, the United States Army was founded. We are all with you on this special day wherever you are in the world, as well the rest of the year. Thank you all, for all you have given this country for more than two Centuries.GI2
