To Our Valuable IMCOM Garrison Teams,

Over the past couple of weeks, I have received feedback on the great activities planned in and around our installations for the 237th Army Birthday today.  I commend you and your teams for your efforts to make this an awesome and unforgettable event.

Now more than ever telling the Army story strengthens America’s connection with its Army. The relationship between Soldier and society is special. I encourage you to look at your Army Birthday plans one more time and seize this opportunity.

In particular we can highlight our Army heritage and proud traditions. Here are some ideas from the field.

Some of you mentioned starting the day with the community gathered for reveille at the main post flag pole followed by a community-wide fun run/walk. Invite the community onto your installation and highlight your installation missions and the core programs that make us Army Strong. Tell the stories of our brave Soldiers and civilians who serve and their families who provide the unconditional love and support that strengthen the spirit of our Army. In San Antonio and the National Capital Region, an Army Birthday Ball will wrap up the day in a special way.

Let’s celebrate our Army Birthday! Thanks for all you do every day. It is inspiring to watch all of you in action.

ARMY STRONG!
