Happy Birthday, Army!

231 Years

The day began at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery ... honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

As always, a special birthday greeting to the soldiers of...

...where the rubber meets the road, the leather meets the dirt and the metal meets the meat.

Do you know which units the above patches represent?

Today is a good day to find out.

Having grown up an Army Brat, I know all but the first two on the bottom left. And I left home some 42 years ago. I especially am proud of the 3rd Infantry Division (Top row, on the far right) as my dad wore that patch on his right sleeve (indicating combat in that division) and I remember especially the 102nd Infantry Division (Men of the Ozarks - not shown) which I have written about. Great post MMM. Thanks for the Memories.
