Great Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army

on the occasion of its 231st birthday, from Jeff Goldstein:

to the US Army, which today turns 231--though to look at it, you'd swear it couldn't possibly be a day over 40. And it still moves pretty well for its age, too--as quite a few erstwhile "freedom fighters" in Iraq and Afghanistan would be the first to tell you.

If they weren't off humping white raisins in Paradise, that is.
