Congressman Cleaver Wishes Army Happy Birthday!
“With America’s Army standing up for our country’s freedom all over the world, it is only appropriate that we take time out today to honor all of those serving and to let them know how much they are appreciated,” said U.S. Representative Cleaver. “Our Army is the best in the world and they show their talent, character and commitment each and every day.”
From defending our security at home and abroad to offering rescue and recovery services in the wake of disaster – the United States Army is the gold standard when it comes to training, technique and talent. For longer than two centuries they have led the way throughout the world. More than a million strong, Army forces are currently engaged on 6 of the 7 continents.
“We thank all of the soldiers, the civilians and family members who are leading the way to keep the United States safe and strong,” said Congressman Cleaver. “Happy Birthday can never cover all of the gratitude and appreciation I have for the Army, but it is a sentiment that is truly heartfelt.”
