FORT HUACHUCA — On Friday, the Army will celebrate its 238th birthday.

To honor the date, the post is hosting two events on Warrior/Sentinel Field.

Fort personnel will conduct a U.S. Army Birthday Run, at 6 a.m., which begins and ends on Warrior/Sentinel Field.

Immediately following the run, there will be an Army birthday cake cutting ceremony on the field.

Fort personnel, their family members and the local community, are welcome to join in the celebration.

The 238th year of the Army is also the 60th anniversary of the Korean War and the 40th anniversary of the All-Volunteer Force.

As an aside, June 14 is also the 236th anniversary of the establishment the U. S. flag.

Motorists should expect disruptions in the flow of traffic in the vicinity of Warrior-Sentinel Field on the day of the event, and, if possible, should plan alternate driving routes and avoid the area until mid-morning.

Obama must not know about this......or these celebratory events would have been cancelled due to sequestration.

They have probably been holding bake sales on the post to raise the money for the celebration.

The IRS will probably be auditing them now.

As an organization, this is a hollow celebration, IMO, due to the political correctness that’s been forced on it by craven politicians that don’t understand why the military exists or how the US military has been the center of our security through the years by having a moral center and standards. I will celebrate the service of any member for their sacrifice for our country but I weep for the loss of what once was a vital institution, now turned into a social experimentation lab.
