Joseph B. Corcoran III and Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Heriberto Quintana.Col. Corcoran and Command Sgt. Maj. Quintana made the distribution fun for Service Members as they drove up to receive their meals by asking the trivia question “How old is the Army?” Some responses were interesting and the majority of Soldiers not only knew the age of the US Army but also that of services, such as the Puerto Rico National Guard.Our Army’s history of service to the nation is part of the enduring fabric of America’s legacy, Fort Buchanan thanks DFMWR staff and the Gary Sinise Foundation for supporting our troops while commemorating the 245th Army Birthday.
