Today is July 4th, 2013. In 1776, on this day, a ragtag bunch of rebels sent the King of England a notice that we were declaring
independence from Britain's rule. Then on March 4, 1789, the constitution of the United States of America was signed into act and this
country became an independent nation from all others.
So on this day I salute our men and women of the armed forces of the USA on a job well done, protecting our Constitution and letting us live
the freedom that so many died to create and to protect. I want to thank the relatives I have lost in the military and to the ones who came home.
I want to especially thank the military members of our F|A family who have given so much for their country and for us. It is most appreciated.
I also would like to thank our friends from across the Atlantic for their help in securing our freedoms in this time of terror. We are comrades,
friends, and brothers in this endeavor.
