View Full Version : Happy 236th Birthday for US Army

The oldest wing of the Military formed officially on this day in 1775 (a year before seeking independance :laugh:) The Navy and Marine Corps...who broke from the Army, celebrate their 236th Birthday later this year. Infact by the the time the Continental Congress of America submitted its application for Freedom, America (as a Nation rather then thirteen outposts) already had a unified Land, Sea, and special forces based Armed Forces all of their own)

The Coast Guard followed a decade before the close of the same Century...

Ironically...the US Airforce wasnt officially established until AFTER the Second World War...Which means at the time of the Nuclear Bombardment of Japan...one supposes they were still officially the US Army :blink:
