For most of us in the US, the 4th of July is about celebrating our independence with BBQ, beer, and maybe the beach. While Independence Day is a fun day for family and friends, let’s not forget those who are making sacrifices by serving in the armed forces. It has to be difficult for them and their families.
On holidays like this, we should also keep in mind the men and women serving our communities as police officers, firefighters, paramedics…etc. These brave people (and their families) make sacrifices year-round so that we can be more safe, and sometimes it comes at a great expense.
To those of you currently serving here and abroad, thank you. I also want to thank those who have previously served this country. You are appreciated.
