The Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) celebrated the Army’s 240th Birthday at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, on Friday, June 12, with an Army Birthday cookout followed by an official observance and cake cutting on the Headquarters PEO EIS lawn.

CPT Maureen Minder, Assistant Product Manager, Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP) Hub, narrated the official observance, which included remarks on the theme of selfless service from Mr. Doug Wiltsie, PEO EIS, and an invocation by Mr. Jim Kline, Director, Operations and Theater Support Directorate (OTSD).

Mr. Wiltsie highlighted some of the rich history of the Army and the accomplishments of its Soldiers today, while CPT Minder read from the history of the Continental Resolution. As is the tradition for Army Birthday, the first cut to the celebratory cake was made by LTC Ossie Peacock, Product Manager, Army Contract Writing System (ACWS), followed by CPT Eric Terrell, Assistant Product Manager, Power Projection Enablers (P2E), the most senior and the youngest uniformed Soldiers assigned to PEO EIS.

The cookout and the cake cutting ceremony were both well attended by more than 150 employees and tenant neighbors, raising funds for the PEO EIS Organization Day on June 26, and providing an opportunity for the workforce to reflect on the importance of the tradition and history of the United States Army.

The Army Birthday is officially marked on June 14 each year.

Happy Birthday, Army – Hooah!
