Happy 244th Birthday, U.S. Army!
It's the last day of Spring semester! Congratulations to all of the ARCC graduates 🎓
Hobart veteran, a WWII paratooper, to revisit battle sites for first time in 75 years Hobart veteran Harold Johnson, a paratrooper in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, will return to the site of his landing for the first time in 75 years.
Today’s is Army Veteran Clayton Henson. Clayton served during the War on Terror.
Inspired to enlist with the United States Army following the September 11th terror attacks, Clayton served with 1st Squadron of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment.
Clayton and his regiment were later deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. On April 17, 2004 Clayton was killed in action when his convoy was ambushed in the city of Diwaniyah, Iraq.
Clayton is interred at Evergreen Cemetery in Stanton, Texas. For actions during his service, Clayton was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. He is remembered by his friends and family as having served his country with honor and pride, believing in what he fought for.
We honor his service.
April 5th is Gold Star Spouses Day.
A Gold Star Spouse is a husband or wife whose spouse passed away while serving in the U.S. military. They are the survivors of their fallen Servicemember.
Today is the day we hear and reflect on their stories.
Remembering all who served.
Today we remember all of those whose bravery and valor have accorded them the honor of receiving the Medal of Honor, the highest military award that can be bestowed. For many, the actions that earned them this prestigious award were their last. Thank you for your sacrifices.
We can't forget our four-legged Veterans. Happy K-9 Veterans Day to all the military working dogs out there. Have your handler give you extra head scratches today.
Formed out of necessity following the previous December's attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States Navy Construction Force celebrates March 5th, 1942 as it's birthday.

Happy 78th birthday to the Coast Guard Reserves!
It’s amazing how ubiquitous this photo has become, and the passing of the sailor pictured in it acts as a reminder of the rate at which we are losing our WWII veteran population.
Sailor in iconic V-J Day Times Square kiss photo dies at 95 George Mendonsa was shown kissing Greta Zimmer Friedman, a dental assistant in a nurse’s uniform, on Aug. 14, 1945.
New military/veteran legislation.
Trump recently signed two veterans bills into law. Here’s how they’ll affect you. On its way out the door, the 115th Congress passed a pair of bills aimed at improving education and other aspects of the transition from military to civilian life. Now that President Trump’s signature has made them law, here’s what they mean for veterans and military families.

A very Happy 382nd Birthday to United States National Guard. Friends, neighbors, co-workers and warriors. Thank you for your dedication.
As the years pass by, fewer and fewer of the brave warriors that were present that day in Hawaii, 77 years ago, remain with us. Today we remember all of these men and women, military and civilian alike, whether they left us that December day, or the countless days since.
Earning his wings before his 19th birthday, former President George H.W. Bush (1924- 2018) was a highly decorated Naval Aviator in World War II. He past away Friday, November 30th, at age 94. Fair winds and following seas, Mr. President.
ARCC is incredibly thankful for each and every one of our student-veterans. Please be safe while traveling, have a second (or third) slice of pie, too much stuffing, and enjoy the mini-break. We’ll see you all again in classes next week!
"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations." -- Woodrow Wilson
