Join the celebration of the U.S. Army Birthday on June 14 as we remember its creation in 1775. The army originally consisted of volunteer soldiers with roots to the Continental Army...
Today, as the largest branch of the U.S. military, the proud men and women of the U.S. Army continue to provide peace and security for all of us.

Happy birthday to the U.S. Army on June 14! What started off as mostly a volunteer service, has evolved into a force to be reckoned with.

The annual celebration marks the date in history in 1775 when the Continental Army was formed by the Second Continental Congress and commanded under General George Washington

There was a time when there were never more than 48,000 Continental soldiers. Today, the United States Army boasts over one million soldiers on duty, with an additional 800,000 Reserve- and National Guard members.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in Arlington, Virginia, is one of the most famous monuments in the U.S.
Learn about its history and honor its importance.

... 20.4 million living U.S. veterans ...take the opportunity to seek out a veteran and offer gratitude for their service.
