HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the United States ARMY!  235 years young today!  

Since today is anniversary of the forming of the United States Continental Army, i thought it appropriate to have the Army Song as my song for today.

March along, sing our song, with the Army of the free
Count the brave, count the true, who have fought to victory
We're the Army and proud of our name
We're the Army and proudly proclaim

First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nation’s might,
And The Army Goes Rolling Along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle’s won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along

Then it's Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army's on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong* 
* "Two! Three!" is typically sung here but is not an official part of the song
For where e’er we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along. 

Valley Forge, Custer's ranks,
San Juan Hill and Patton's tanks,
And the Army went rolling along
Minute men, from the start,
Always fighting from the heart,
And the Army keeps rolling along.
Men in rags, men who froze,
Still that Army met its foes,
And the Army went rolling along.
Faith in God, then we're right,
And we'll fight with all our might,
As the Army keeps rolling along.

Now, i would like to point out here... that this was originally the Artillery Song, and we are kindly sharing it will all of our branch brothers in the Army. 8)
