NEW ORLEANS - Friday is a very special day for our country and its armed forces.

June 14 is Flag Day, and it is also the birthday of the United States Army.

The army turned 238-years-old.

Sergeant First Class Yerlondra Tapia and one of the newest enlisted soldiers, Private Jesus Buendia, were in the studio to help us celebrate the big occasion.

There's a birthday celebration at New Orleans City Hall on Thursday in council chambers at 10 a.m.
