Question: Why Thursday, any significance??

Army Day is on April 6th!

Army Day can be traced back to a little-known Defense Test Day, which was observed only twice: once in 1924 and once in 1925. On April 4, 1936, President Roosevelt issued a proclamation that Army Day be recognized by Congress as April 6 and observed nationwide. On March 1, 1937, Congress passed Resolution #5-75 that officially recognized Army Day. Army Day is observed nationally on April 6.

Saw it on my VFW calender this morning!

I never in my life knew that, Swinney! I am always learning something on Free Republic.

What a coincidence; April 6 is also my birthday.
