Happy 4th of July
Special Occasions / 2015-07-04

As we celebrate another 4th of July I like to sit back and say thank you to all the soldiers that gave their lives to making sure we could be free.  There is always a huge risk our soldiers take when they go out into the battlefield and we as Americans should really appreciate what they have done for us over the years and when we have a chance thank them for their service.

We must also salute those veterans that are alive today that have also given so much to maintain our freedom.

Memorial Day is not just an American holiday but a day where we…
