Happy Birthday U.S. Army and Happy Flag Day!


The U.S. Army was founded on 14 June 1775 when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of riflemen to serve the United Colonies for one year. It was on this date when Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in The Committee of the Whole. 14 June is also the day we commemorate the adoption of the United States Flag by resolution of the 2nd Continental Congress, in 1777.
