Remember Those Who Defend Our Freedoms

On this Independence Day, as we enjoy the picnics, the gatherings of friends and family, and the fireworks displays, it is important to remember that there would be no nation, no American Republic, but for the sacrifices of citizen soldiers over the past 233 years.

This nation earned its independence through a lengthy, often desperate struggle against a powerful empire. We have survived as a free country, through our willingness, as a people, to fight for those freedoms when they have been threatened.

We owe a debt of gratitude to all those who have served in the military. Today, we urge all our readers to honor the men and women of our armed services — those who serve today, and those who have served in the past. Remember there are men and women standing watch every night and every day … so that all of the rest of us may enjoy our freedoms.
