Happy Independance Day

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Happy birthday to us and congrats on the 234th birthday of the U.S. Army (14 June).

    The June 14 1775 date is when Congress adopted "the American continental army" after reaching a consensus position in The Committee of the Whole.[...]On 15 June Congress unanimously chose George Washington [as commander] Washington had been active in the military planning committees of Congress and by late May had taken to wearing his old uniform. His colleagues believed that his modesty and competence qualified him to adjust to the "Temper & Genius" of the New England troops. Washington was given the rank of General and Commander in Chief.

  2. How are things over there in our little North American colony? Boots fit? Mail getting through? Splendid old chap, splendid.
  3. Rucker well thats a great place for Southern Fried Chicken and Biscuits with Gravy, but shooting down ICBM's with Apache?

    Happy Brithday all you Septics.

    But keep the noise down as your northern neighbours will just be getting over headaches from their own birthday party.
  5. Happy Independence Day, Yanks!

    The offer is always open to come back you know... Liz is a lovely lady and I'm sure she would forgive all that silliness over the tea, taxes and such.... :lol:
  6. Ah yes the day we freed ourselves from oppressive tyrant rule and taxation without representation.

    Glad we are so free and independent...all hail the messiah....

  9. Happy Birthday Rebel Scum, any time you want to come back... :D
  10. Wasn't it just another English/British Civil War ?
  11. Happy Birthday to all you Yankee Doodle Dandies. I used to wind my Texan mate up, I took him to a wee boozer that had been serving ale 586 years before Independance Day. I reminded him that Britain had Traditions, a fine History & a Monarchy. The Septics were still a young nation only just developing habits !!! Will raise a glass later to all Yanks serving on Ops away from their families. Safe home boys & girls.
