US Army 238 Years Old Today

In honor of that day, June 14th, 1775 the founding of the Continental Army and the service of so many of my family members I thought I would do a visual salute to the United States Army.

Happy 238th to the US Army

So in honor of my Dad who was in on the front lines facing the Russians in Germany during the Korean Conflict, my Uncle and several cousins in Vietnam, my Great-uncle in WWI(who was gassed by the Germans), several other cousins in WWII, and the many ancestors who fought in other wars including those in Ohio Regiments during the Civil War(Including Kingsbury Sweet). This is for all of you.
