The Fourth of July is a day that we all celebrate our independence with barbecues, parades, and fireworks. While we partake in these festivities, take the time to acknowledge the sacrifices made by our armed forces to ensure we are able to rejoice in such a way. Although we should show our gratitude every chance we get, the Fourth of July is an especially profound time to thank the nation’s military community for their sacrifices and for our freedom.
Whether it be through letter, care package, salute, or a simple handshake, let these brave men and women know how much they are appreciated and that their service does not go unnoticed.
To all of our armed forces, past and present, we thank you. And to those of you who are currently overseas, we are thinking of you, we support you, and we wish you a happy 4th of July and a safe return home.
