Fun, Family, and the Fourth of July

Today we wish you a happy and safe Independence Day, we would also encourage you that amid the beach towels, cook-outs, and fireworks, remember the men and women who willingly put it all on the line for the freedoms we enjoy.

Don’t forget the real meaning of why the whole country celebrates each July 4th. If we each thank at least one veteran, they will know our mission.
And please help your neighbors be mindful of those veterans who walk with invisible wounds like PTSD, which can make the fireworks celebrations a terrorizing event.

As holidays and celebrations approach, it is important for us to remember and honor the selflessness of our service members and their families, as many of them cannot be home to join in the festivities.
