On June 14, 1775 the Continental Army was created by the Continental Congress as a unified army that would allow the colonies to fight Great Britain. After gaining our independence our army stayed committed to defending our country and its people. 238 years later our U.S. Army is still committed to defending our great country and is committed to doing it with an all-volunteer force.
On the same day two years after the Continental Congress formed the Continental Army the Second Continental Congress adopted our flag to represent our young nation
So on this day we recognize Flag Day by flying our Old Glory from our porch
and we celebrate the birthday of the army with a little patriotic treat.
For an inspirational little read on Old Glory check this out
and Happy 238th Birthday, U.S. Army!
