Press Release

Today Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) issued the following statement to mark the U.S. Army’s 241st birthday:

“Today we celebrate the 241st birthday of the United States Army. As a former Navy pilot, I know this celebration is more than just a date on the calendar. It honors the millions of soldiers, over a span of 241 years, that have and will continue to selflessly defend a grateful nation. From the Revolutionary War to the Global War on Terrorism, our Army has always been ready and leading. The American soldier has answered the call to serve and protect our freedom in over 30 wars, rebellions and conflicts. Today, we salute the Army soldiers currently serving our nation, our veterans, and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you and Happy Birthday to our Army.”
