To all my homie's past & present, Happy Birthday to the best trained, dressed, outfitted Army in the world!
As we celebrate our 238th birthday,
let us remember the nearly 80,000 Soldiers deployed and more than 91,000 Soldiers forward stationed in almost 150 countries. Let us also remember the millions who have gone before us, and made us the best Army in the world. We stand on their shoulders as we write the next chapter in our Army's history.
I am incredibly proud of your successes and I thank each of you for your service to our nation.
To all Soldiers past and present, Once a Soldier, Always a Soldier!
United States Army!
- Gen. Raymond T. Odierno
