Fort Polk's Child Development Center went all out June 19 in helping Army kids understand -- and celebrate -- the Army's 234th birthday. CDC and Family Child Care kids got to march in a pint-sized parade decorated with patriotic colors and symbols. Some dads even got to participate (or lend their uniforms).

Little Kennedy Adams may be too young to march, but she seems awfully amazed (or is it impressed?) as the CDC parade passes. Kids were also treated to games, inflatables and a staple of every birthday celebration: Cake.
