HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! REMEMBER HOW IT WAS WON FOR YOU !
Buddy poppies support our local veterans needs
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
July the Fourth
Parades, Picnics, Fireworks – The Fourth of July. As we celebrate across our great country, it could be easy to forget why we’re celebrating in the first place. Independence Day was first celebrated on July 4, 1776. Two days before, a congress composed of delegates from all thirteen colonies — colonies under the control of the British King — voted for independence. On the fourth, they published the Declaration of Independence, the document that explained their decision to the world at large. It is for that document and what it came to symbolize that we celebrate.
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” – John F. Kennedy
