Happy 236th Birthday U.S. Army – VCA at Fort Hamilton

As you may have seen from our previous post, in addition to flag day, today we celebrate the 236th birthday of the United States Army. At 0700 this morning, a VCA detail reported to Garrison HQ, Fort Hamilton to participate in today’s’ celebration. At the appropriate time, 13 rounds were fired from 3 75mm Pack Howitzers to celebrate both Flag Day and the Army’s birthday.  Here are some pictures from the dress rehearsal on 13 June.  While Soldiers and Airmen assigned to the detail practiced their portion of the ceremony, VCA members inspected and readied the cannons for today’s’ celebration.
