Being primarily based in Military City USA, we have a special affinity for the hard work and sacrifice that our military does for our nation. As it states in the US Army motto,”This we’ll defend”. We appreciate that as well as their dedication.

The U.S. Army is one of the nation’s largest military branch in the United States. 244 years ago today, the United States Army was born when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of the riflemen to serve the 13 colonies in our revolution against Britain. Ranging from San Juan Hill and the beaches of Normandy to Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. Army has a long and proud tradition of defending America and our interests.

In celebrating this day, the U.S. Army Drill Team performs every year during Army Day on April 24 in San Antonio at the Alamo. The San Antonio community comes together every year to honor and celebrate San Antonio’s tricentennial and 300 years of military history for those who have served in the Army by hosting the annual Army Birthday Ball. Traditionally, Joint Base San Antonio has a large celebration of the U.S. Army’s birthday.

Davis Law Firm wants to honor and give a heartily congratulate the members of our community that have sacrificed their lives in order to serve our nation proudly. We are also proud to have both clients and employees of Davis Law Firm throughout our multiple locations ranging from Corpus Christi to McAllen all the way from Waco to San Antonio. Davis Law Firm is so thankful to be a part of the community of San Antonio.
