Today we celebrate Independence Day. Many of us celebrate with family and friends, we have picnics, sometimes eat apple pie, enjoy parades and fireworks, and lots of American flags are flying. This is also a great time to reflect on how the U.S. came to win its independence and continues today to maintain its independence. This would of course not be possible without the service of our brave men and women in the military. So I just wanted to take a brief opportunity to thank all of our military personnel and their families for their service and sacrifices.
