Happy Independence Day 2015!
We want to extend a big Thank You to the men, women and families that help protect our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. As quoted by our Secretary of Defense, Mr. Ash Carter:
When George Washington issued one of his first general orders on July 4, 1775, he transformed a loose group of colonial militias into a single force united in a common cause. They built a legacy that lives on today, through generations of patriots like you, who have defended the ideals enshrined in our founding documents: the belief that we are all created equal and endowed with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It’s the risks you take, and the sacrifices you make, that ensure those ideals endure for all of us.
This Independence Day, you, including the nearly 200,000 troops currently serving overseas and unable to spend this holiday with their loved ones, continue to protect our country and ensure a more peaceful and prosperous world for our children. In Europe and the Middle East, across the Asia-Pacific and in Africa, in cyber-space and at home, you prove that wherever our troops go, our highest ideals – the ones Washington and his troops fought for – go with them.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to our fellow Americans at home and around the world.
Happy Independence Day!
Have a great weekend, and stay safe!
