Happy Flag Day…and Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army!

Today our country celebrates not one but two special occasions — Flag Day and the 237th birthday of the U.S. Army…

We have MUCH to be thankful for…..please join us as we honor our flag and pay tribute to those who — past and present — protect and defend the country it represents. Learn more about Flag Day here: National Flag Day Foundation

Happy birthday to the U.S. Army and best wishes to our Army friends — active-duty and reserve Soldiers, Veterans and their loved ones! THANK YOU for your service!

Gen. Raymond T. Odierno,  the 38th Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, shares a birthday greeting of his own:

HOOAH! Finally, many thanks to all of you who generously support our efforts to support our Military. Remember: Every donation of $15 helps send another care package! Please consider making a donation today: Donate Now

THANK YOU!

P.S. K-12 Students, don’t forget: We want YOU to enter the “Pictures for Patriots” art contest before the deadline on July 10. Read all about it and get more details here: 2012 Pictures for Patriots Contest
