Happy Birthday U.S. Army

To my fellow Cavalry Troopers and friends,

Today, June 14th, marks the 232d Birthday of the United States Army. On
this day in 1775, the Army was born. As former troopers of the 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry you can be proud of your contribution to our Nation and the Army. The United States Army and its soldiers have never failed in its duty to our great Nation. You are a part of that great tradition and legacy.

Please remember the sacrifices of the soldiers of the United States Army. I hope all will wish every soldier now serving, and those who wore the uniform in our war and other past wars, a Happy Birthday. Every one of you who served is a hero. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Today our Army's soldiers, all heroes, are in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. While most of us spent this day in comfort, our soldiers and their families are sacrificing enormously in the defense of liberty and our nation. These soldiers do not serve to become rich but instead serve for the privilege of defending our Nation, our values, and our way of life. I know that you do this but when we meet a soldier, thank him or her for his or her service and sacrifice.

Thank you former Cavalry Troopers for your service and thank you current soldiers for your service and sacrifice. Happy Birthday United States Army.

John,
