Army Reserve senior leader makes history at America’s birthplace
Maj. Gen. Rodney Faulk, commanding general of the Army Reserve’s 99th Readiness Division, joins military and community members gathered at Washington Square in Philadelphia June 14 to witness a tree-planting as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Green Canopy initiative celebrating her 70 years on the throne of England, as well as a wreath-laying at the park’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The day’s events began with a naturalization ceremony for 13 new U.S. citizens at the National Constitution Center, followed by remarks from several senior Army leaders celebrating Flag Day and the U.S. Army’s 247th birthday, the administering of the Oath of Enlistment to dozens of new Army recruits, and a traditional cutting of the Army birthday cake.
