June 14, 2017 is the U.S. Army's 242nd year in existence, and that fact is being celebrated in various ways all across the country today.


The time honored cake cutting ceremony seems to be everyone's favorite way to celebrate the Army's birthday, but many installations are combining it with other fun activities. Some of which, are being shared with the public.

Take the handful of soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division, for example, who formed a band to entertain civilians at a local farmers market in Hinesville, GA. There was also the event, "Army Day at the Races" in Englishtown, N.J. where community members were invited to challenge themselves in some physical fitness exercises alongside soldiers from the U.S. Army Reserve's 99th Regional Support Command.

Between giant birthday card signings, races and a wave of re-enlistments, there seems to be something a little unique going on today in and around many installations, so check out your local community page for activities you might enjoy and help the U.S. Army celebrate 242 years and counting!
