Celebrating 243rd Birthday of U.S. Army

On 14 June 2018,  The AUSA North Texas-Audie Murphy Chapter celebrated the 243rd birthday of the U.S. Army in the Fairview Town Hall, in the Town of Fairview, Texas. It was a spectacular day, with over 80 guests in attendance. Among Active Duty and Veterans in attendance, the Enlistment Ceremony was a highlight of the afternoon’s festivities. Among other encouraging, insightful words of wisdom for the new oath-takers, Col John Antal gave a powerful talk that tied history, love of country and honor together brilliantly.
