The M1906 artillery piece that sat at the base of the Presidio of Monterey flagpole is gone, on its way to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, for refurbishing. Learn more about the weapon here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4.7_inch_Gun_M1906
We are extremely PROUD to have been able to join and support our community in celebrating our country's #IndependenceDay yesterday, a day that celebrates the very freedoms that we have sworn an oath to protect.
Thank you City of Monterey for once again putting together an awesome parade and party and for including the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center Joint Service Color Guard and service marching units.

On this day in history World War II Army Veteran Melvin Kaminsky, aka Mel Brooks, was born in 1926.
Brooks enlisted in the Army in 1944 at the age of 17. He later participated in the Battle of the Bulge while serving in 1104th Engineer Combat Battalion, a unit that braved sniper fire and shelling to build bridges, clear blocked roads and deactivate landmines ahead of advancing Allied forces.
Happy Birthday Mr. Brooks!
