US Army! Happy Birthday to You!

June 3rd marked the 235th anniversary of the founding of the United States Army. We at Zion Beckons offer congratulations and prayers for their continued success in every endeavor. As one who volunteered to be with them during the Korean era for three years, I look back with great affection to those with whom I served, with gratitude to those who preceded me, and a kinship to those who have followed to uphold our noble traditions.

Given the capabilities and responsibilities of our current army, we find them well prepared and willing to continue to uphold our liberties anywhere they are called. As a gift to you, our readers, we have an exceptional video of the US Army’s greeting to Pope Benedict XVI on his first visit to the United States a couple years ago.

It is the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” done by a group of exceptional individuals, both the US Arny chorus and the band. This link will take you to Hot Air and the video. Watch it; it’s great.

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon
