Photos depicted above show the history of the U.S. Army, such as (above) in Salem, Massachusetts, 1637. The history of the National Guard began, Dec. 13, 1636, when the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony ordered the organization of the colony’s militia companies into three regiments. The growing threat of the Pequot Indians to the Massachusetts Bay Colony required that the militia be in a high state of readiness. Today, the National Guard continues its historic mission of providing units for the first-line defense of the nation.
At top, the 240th Army birthday logo appears with Revolutionary War Soldiers and the World War II Army poster, “You Are Needed Now,” encourages women to join the Army Nurses Corps at a Red Cross recruiting office.
A host of celebrations continue today through June 14. U.S. Army-Pacific celebrates the birthday at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, tonight.
