Today is the 69th birthday of the #DoD as we all know it! Technically, the federal government organization that oversees the armed forces has been around about as long as our nation. It can be confusing, so we’ll explain: https://go.usa.gov/xUdbS #KnowYourMil #DoDSince1949
Your military is an all-volunteer force that serves to protect our security and way of life, but Service members are more than a fighting force. They are leaders, humanitarians, and your fellow Americans. Get to know more about the men and women who serve, who they are, what they do, and why they do it.
