I think the Army Strong ad campaign is probably the best campaign the U.S. military has ever devised. I have seen that ad several dozens of times and it still brings a tear to my eye.
I happen to be a Navy supporter. I remember one Army/Navy game while the theme was Army of One where the Navy did a tremendous spirit spot with legos enacting a star trek show. "Army of One, does not compute."
But Army Strong has to be the best because it speaks to the heart of the Army. God bless the United States Army and Happy Birthday!

They are the best Army in the world and they are strong.

The music in the Army Strong ad just has to be John Williams, assuming he wants the attribution.

Does anyone know who wrote the music? It's certainly what drives the ad.
