The U.S. Army was founded on 14 June 1775, when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of riflemen to serve the United Colonies for one year. The 14 June date is when Congress adopted "the American continental army" after reaching a consensus position in The Committee of the Whole.
Today is Armed Forces Day honoring all Service members serving in the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard. Thank you for your patriotic service in support of our country! On Aug. 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department -- the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Happy Armed Forces Day, everyone!
Hello, everybody! My name is Nelson Eguizabal, and I am the creator and super administrator of Awesome Vets. I am a Combat Veteran and a former U.S. Army Infantryman. I would like to welcome you to AV personally. I hope you have fun while browsing through the site. What else can I say about myself? Let's see; I joined the Active Duty component in 2008 where I served as a Fire Team Leader in 2nd PLT. B Co. 4-31st IN 2nd BCT, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, NY. I originally started out as a reservist in 2006 and decided to switch to Active Duty in late 2007. I re-classed my MOS to 11B because I always wanted to be a Grunt. As a result, I had to go through the Infantry Basic Combat Training and AIT (which I didn't mind, honestly.). Anyway, long story short I ETS in June 2011 as a Sergeant and then I did a few months of National Guard to complete my Individual Ready Reserve term, and now I am completely out of the Army with no strings attached and managing this brand-new online military resource! Do you have any questions for me? Ask away!
