NEWSPAPER CELEBRATES 152 YEARS !

STARS AND STRIPES 2

 1st stars and stripes
    First issue of the Stars and Stripes newspaper

Stars and Stripes is a newspaper that reports on matters concerning members of the 
United States Armed Forces. It operates from inside the Department of Defense, but
is editorially separate from it, and its First Amendment protection is safeguarded by
Congress. It is a non-appropriated fund organization, only partially subsidized by the 
Department of Defense. A large portion of its operating costs is earned through the 
sale of advertising and subscriptions.

The history of the newspaper dates back to November 9, 1861, when during the
Civil War, soldiers of the 11th, 18th, and 29th Illinois Regiments set up camp in Bloomfield, Missouri. Finding the office of the local newspaper empty, they then 
decided to print a newspaper about their activities. They called it the Stars and
Stripes
. Today, the Stars & Stripes Museum/Library Association is located in
Bloomfield.
