The branch is older than the United States itself, with origins in the Continental Army that convened to fight in the Revolutionary War.

The OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa celebrated the Army’s anniversary with a party Friday at the Heroes Hall veterans museum, featuring a ceremony, military representatives and birthday cake.
