PROPER DISPLAY METHOD
Indoor military flags should be presented from left to right. The American flag is displayed first, followed in order by the U.S. Army flag, U.S. Marine Corps flag, U.S Navy flag, U.S. Air Force flag, U.S Space Force, and lastly the U.S. Coast Guard flag. The guideline for the order of precedence for these flags was established by the U.S Department of Defense.
ARMY HISTORY LESSON
The United States Army is a major branch of the United States Armed Forces. The Army makes up almost all of the ground forces within the American military.
The Continental Army was first organized by the second Continental Congress on June 14, 1775, during the early months of the American Revolution. This Continental Army consisted of 22,000 troops in Boston and 5,000 troops in New York.
In 1776, due to pleas from George Washington, the Continental Congress established a single standing force directly raised from all the colonies. This was the beginning of the regular Army.
Although it took many wars to become fully established, the Army is the oldest branch in the United States Armed Forces.
