238th Army Birthday

WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD, Hawaii (June 7, 2013) -- The 238th Army birthday commemorates America's Army.

This year, the Army's birthday falls on an Aloha Friday, and the senior commands want to provide Soldiers, families and authorized civilian employees the opportunity to dine with the Army's finest culinary teams.

To mark the occasion, five dining facilities in the Schofield Barracks area will serve a special lunch meal in celebration, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

An "aloha crisp" dress code will be in place, which means diners should be in aloha wear/casual dress. Open-toed shoes, shorts or T-shirts are not allowed. Military members may choose to wear either dress code attire or their Army service uniforms.
