Saluting Our Armed Forces – The U.S. Army

Did you know?

Under Michigan law, the flag of each branch of service is flown over the state Capitol on the service founding date. In the coming months we’ll be taking time to recognize each of the five military branches. Today, we honor and salute the men and women — past and present — who proudly represent the United States Army.

The United States Army is the largest and most senior branch of the U.S. military. At 240 years old, its roots can be traced all the way back to the Continental Army, which was established to help fight the American Revolutionary War.

The Army is part of the Department of the Army, which is one of three military departments within the Department of Defense.
