Happy Birthday, U.S. Army

June 14, 2009

Happy birthday, Army! You look pretty good for 234. You might be a little frayed at the edges, but that’s to be expected with today’s optempo. I know you’ll bounce back, though; you’ve made it through the Revolutionary War and every conflict since.

I couldn’t wrap your gift, because he’s in Afghanistan. (Hint: Look for the guy in the ACUs!) And you might as well know now: I’m going to want that present back in a few years, so don’t get too attached. Enjoy him and your other 1,097,049 gifts, but treat them well and use them wisely. They’re precious.

On your big day, please accept my gratitude for securing our freedom and my thanks for continuing to defend it. Here’s to another couple hundred years of rolling along. Hooah!
