HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

On Independence Day, Americans will celebrate our country’s freedom with fireworks, family, and friends. Amidst the fun and hoopla, let’s pause to remember the supreme price of freedom. The holiday is Independence Day. The day it is celebrated is July 4th. Because freedom is our most revered right as citizens of the United States, Independence Day encompasses a whole Fourth of July weekend to celebrate.

Let’s hoist up our American flags, prominently wear our red, white, and blue, and proudly show our dedication to those to whom we owe this weekend: our nation’s veterans and U.S. military.

As the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization, the American Legion Auxiliary thanks the brave men and women who fought – and continue to fight – at home and abroad, along with their families who sacrificed along with them to allow us the privilege to live in the Land of the Free because of the brave.

God Bless America, and Happy Independence Day!
