A birthday party for the US Army

Today in Times Square the U.S. Army celebrated its 237th birthday with music and ceremony, the swearing in of some new recruits and the cutting of a giant tank-shaped, TV-chef-made cake. As you know by now, Times Square is the photographic stomping ground of our own Andy Dallos, so naturally he was there for some pictures to share with us.

After the jump, a few more photos and also, did you see the video of the cupcake tank at the Pentagon celebration? It actually fired cupcakes!

(What’s that old saying about schools getting the funding and the Pentagon holding a bakesale?)

Digression: Cupcake cannon.
