As I looked back as to why we celebrate this day which was called Independence Day that changed the course of history. The Declaration of independence was signed by the Continental Congress declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
As of today we still continue to fight for our independence from those who threaten our very way of life. I know that there is a cost associated with our freedom, the sacrifice of lives, sacrifice of not always being there for our families and much more.
Let us continue to keep in mind our military personnel who continues to be in harm’s way as we enjoy the festivities of what tomorrow will bring.
Thanks for all you do to build up America’s Army and the sacrifice you are making to keep us “Army Strong”.
Happy 4th of July to all. Be safe in whatever you do!
