United States Army Birthday

On 14 June 1775, The Second Continental Congress formed the Continental Army as a means for the 13 unified American colonies to fight the forces of Britain. George Washington was unanimously elected Commander-In-Chief of the fledgling Army, and he would lead the colonies to victory and independence. Today, the Army is made up of more than 700,000 Soldiers, including active duty and Army Reserve personnel. The Army is one of the largest and most important government organizations in the United States. The U.S. Army is made up of the most dedicated, most respected Soldiers in the world. These Soldiers protect America’s freedoms while serving at home and abroad, and they are always prepared to defend the nation in times of need.

This We’ll Defend
