Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps

Today is a birthday announcement  for all of my fellow wrench turners.  The U.S. Army Ordnance Corps turns 197 years young today.

The Ordnance Department was established by the act of 14 May 1812. During the Revolutionary War, ordnance material was under supervision of the Board of War and Ordnance. Numerous shifts in duties and responsibilities have occurred in the Ordnance Corps since colonial times. It acquired its present designation in 1950.

That’s 197 years of providing support to the line, on the line, on time.  It also means that it is about time for a new Regimental Crest.
