Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army

240 Years of Selfless Service

Army-BDAYThis Sunday marks the 240th birthday of the United States Army, so today we’d like to take a moment to thank all the brave men and women who have served over the years for their selfless sacrifice. We’re all able to enjoy the liberties and freedoms we sometimes take for granted thanks in large part to the role you play in keeping us all safe. So thanks to those who’ve served, those currently serving, and all the Soldiers who will carry the torch going forward.

We hope you get some time to yourself to celebrate. If you’re lucky enough to be attending a birthday ball, which are held among exclusive company in various locations all around the country, be sure to check out our blog on military ball etiquette

If you’re a history buff interested in the uniform and want to check out how much things have changed since the Continental Congress first created the Continental Army in 1775, check out our “History of the Battle Dress” infographic from 2013.

Since Sunday is also Flag Day, if you’d like to reflect on the foundations of American liberty, and learn a few tidbits about some unique American flags you might not have known even existed, check out our Flag Day blog from this past Wednesday. 

From all of us at Pioneer Services, thanks once again for the sacrifices you and your family have made in preserving our freedoms. Happy birthday to the United States Army!
