Happy Fourth of July

As we celebrate America’s birthday this Fourth of July, let us remember that our forefathers, the signers of the Declaration of Independence, pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. These brave men sacrificed all for us so that we may live in the land of the free.

Today, we still have brave young men and women putting themselves in harm’s way so that we may continue to enjoy our freedoms. Our military service members continue to fight the War on Terror—some serving as many as four tours of duty—so that we can keep our independence and protect our homeland. The Fourth of July is a time of reflection. To ask ourselves, do we really appreciate their sacrifices? Do we really know what the real price of freedom looks like?

May you all have a Happy (and safe, for those traveling) Fourth of July weekend……

God Bless our military and their families…..
