June 14th, 2018 marks the U.S. Army’s 243rd birthday!
On June 14th, 1775 the Continental Congress authorized the enlistment of riflemen to serve the colonies for one year. More than two centuries later they are still protecting our freedoms.
From everyone at News 5, we want to wish the Army a very Happy Birthday!
