Happy 243rd Army Birthday!
On the 243rd birthday of the U.S. Army, we recognize and honor the millions of Soldiers who have served, deployed, and sacrificed in support of our Nation over the past century. From World War I to the present, the Soldiers of the U.S. Army have served heroically at home and across the globe in war and peace to support our allies, defeat oppressors, and defend liberty. Men and women, whether draftees or volunteers, and regardless of component—Regular Army, Army National Guard, or U.S. Army Reserve—have banded together for the last 100 years to undertake whatever mission the Nation asked of them. And the Nation has asked a lot: carrying out combat on mountains and in jungles, deserts, and cities; standing guard to preserve the peace in Germany, Korea, and the Sinai; intervening to protect civilians in Bosnia; bringing hope and relief to the stricken and suffering; and fighting terrorism around the world. On this birthday, we think about and remember the Soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice, the veterans who stood watch to defend freedom, and the Soldiers everywhere who continue to honor the Army’s legacy of selfless service. Army heroes! Army Strong!
