UNITED STATES ARMY
Founded 1775

Originally formed on June 14, 1775
as a small militia to protect the
thirteen colonies, the Army is the
oldest and largest branch of the
United States military and has
participated in virtually every war,
military operation and campaign in
our history. The Army has two
distinct and equally important
components, active duty and reserve
forces. The Reserves and National
Guard are referred to as the Reserve
Component. The Army's specialty
branches and career fields provide it
with its unsurpassed flexibility and
range of capabilities. The Army is a
key leader in the full spectrum of
operations including Airborn Air
Mobility, Jungle Desert and Mountain
Combat Land Operations as well as
worldwide peacekeeping missions. 

The memorial is located at DeForest Veterans Memorial Park located on northbound North Main Street / County Highway CV, just north of its intersection with Carriage Way, DeForest, Wisconsin 53532.
