Two hundred and forty-four years ago, the Continental Congress established the United States Army on 14 June 1775. Today, as we pay tribute to the millions of Soldiers, past and present, who have answered the call to serve their nation, we specifically recognize those who participated seventy-five years ago in the largest amphibious operation in U.S. history: Operation Overlord—the invasion of Europe occupied by Nazi Germany.

Early in the morning of 6 June 1944, forever after to be known as D-Day, some 13,000 U.S. Army Airborne troops parachuted behind enemy lines in Normandy, France. Hours later, more than 57,000 Soldiers in hundreds of Higgins boats landed at beaches code named Utah and Omaha. They braved enemy fire to cross deadly ground, from windswept beach to rough cliffs, to advance inland and take the first step on the path that would ultimately lead to Nazi surrender. The price of that first step, however, was costly: suffering nearly 5000 casualties that day.

As we celebrate the Army’s birthday, we remember those 5,000 and the inspiration they left us—inspiration that we draw from Soldiers today, who continue this legacy of bravery and selfless commitment to our country, and the loving families that support them. Happy 244th Birthday, U.S. Army!

“We will accept nothing less than full victory! Good luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”

                                  —Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, message to the Allied Expeditionary Force, 6 June 1944.
