Before you and your family go off to celebrate Our Nations 231st Birthday this July 4th please take a moment to thank the more than 150,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and Marines in Iraq and over 27,000 in Afghanistan who have pledged THEIR LIVES to defend our country. Those who celebrate this Independence Day on lonely outposts in Afghanistan and Iraq are a magnificent reflection of who we are as a people. On Independence Day we might do well to remember that we have enjoyed “the blessings of Liberty ” for 231 years, since our Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, because true heroes – our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Guardsmen sacrifice their tomorrows for us.
You can send best wishes to our troops by completing the form at FREEDOM ALLIANCE. Your message will be printed on a card and sent to a service member either serving abroad or recuperating in a military hospital in the United States .
Have a Patriotic & Safe Holiday.
