In celebration of the Army’s 245th birthday, the Guam Army National Guard’s oldest Soldier Col. Mike Cruz, left, and youngest Soldier Pvt. Jayton Penaflor cut the birthday cake during a ceremony at the Guam National Guard Headquarters in Barrigada today, Friday June 12.

The U.S. Army’s honorable lineage dates back to June 15, 1775.

245 years later, we observe our Army’s values and patriotism, our legacy of service and making a difference in our communities, and the sacrifices we have made.
