Over 242 years ago, the Continental Army was founded. The Continental Army was formed by the Second Continental Congress after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War by the colonies that became the United States of America. Established by a resolution of the Congress on June 14, 1775, it was created to coordinate the military efforts of the Thirteen Colonies in their revolt against the rule of Great Britain. The Continental Army was supplemented by local militias and troops that remained under control of the individual states or were otherwise independent.
Today, we honor our heritage. The US Army has come a long way since its birth and it continues to improve with time. Here's to another year soldiers! Hooah!
