“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence

Today, I am grateful for my country. Today is the 4th of July and it is the day designated to celebrate our independence. The day will be filled with parades, fireworks, and the barbeque grills will be fired up to cook the burgers, hotdogs, sausages, and steaks. Today is a special day for me because I played a part in maintaining our independence by defending this country for 20 of these 4th of July holidays. It was a privilege to serve and an experience I will never forget.

Happy 4th of July!

Until next time…
