Happy Independence Day!

Though most of us are patriotic all year round, the Fourth of July gives us a chance to truly celebrate our independence. As we spend time with our friends and families at parades, barbecues and fireworks displays, I ask that everyone take a moment to remember all the Americans who served throughout our history to protect our freedom as well as defending those in foreign lands whose freedom and independence has been threatened. I ask that we especially remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country and for all those who serve today.

Wishing everyone a safe holiday weekend.
