Happy birthday to the U.S. Army.

The Army's 241st birthday is June 14. The day will be marked with celebrations and traditional cake cutting ceremonies held around the country.

"The U.S. Army's 241st Birthday is...a day we celebrate the Total Army Force comprised of multi-component Soldiers and Department of the Army Civilians and their contributions to national defense. The American Soldier trains, deploys, engages, and destroys enemies of the United States in combat operations as the world's premier land force," Army officials said.
