Today we celebrate the United States Army Birthday

Today (June 14th) commemorates an important day in our nation’s history in which our unwavering military presence began.  The United States Army was founded as the Continental Army on June 14, 1775, in order to defend against the British and unite the militias in the Revolutionary War.  A few months later, the United States Navy was established in order to maintain militaristic advantage over the sea, and then in November, the Marine Corps was born out of the historic Tun Tavern.  Once the Revolutionary War had been won, the Continental Army disbanded and later reformed as the United States Army in 1796.  It would be many years later that the Air Force was created in 1947, branching from the Army Air Corps and the Navy.

Trump cited a total of $5.6 Million donated to 40 veteran groups, all of which have recently been named. Trump went on to say that he took none of the money for admin costs and that all donations went directly to these 40 charities.
