This weekend marks a milestone for the United States Army. Sunday, June 14th, will be the 245th anniversary for the Army. Here locally, officials at Fort Knox are preparing a celebration to make the occasion, albeit different than usual. The post’s Facebook page will premiere a video marking the celebration.
“We’re going to play a video compilation of Ft. Knox’s major units and organizations singing ‘The Army Goes Rolling Along’, which is the Army’s song,” Colonel C.J. King said.
And for those who hold to tradition, the traditional Army birthday cake cutting ceremony will still take place, just virtually.
“Ft. Knox’s commanding general, Major General John Evans will be joined by the oldest and youngest soldiers on post,” King explained.
The events can be seen Sunday on the Ft. Knox Facebook page.
