Meteorologist Chevy Chevalier discusses his time in service on the military’s 249th anniversary

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) – Today marks the military’s 249th anniversary.

The United States Army was first established on June 14, 1775, over a year before the Declaration of Independence was signed. Since then, the military has played a crucial role in America’s growth and development.

This year, the Army’s theme is “Honoring the Past, Defending the Future.” Keeping with the theme, we thought our very own Army veteran, KRDO 13 meteorologist Chevy Chevalier, would talk about his time in his country.

Watch the video above to hear Chevy talk about his time in the service and what it meant to him.
