Happy Fourth of July
Independence Day 2011
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States.
We hope that you are enjoying your day with friends and family. There are many men and women that are apart from their friends and family serving their country in the various armed services. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't have this day to celebrate. Thank you all for your service.
Hopefully you'll be able to take a break from your duties for some R&R. When you do, consider a cruise vacation. In case you weren't aware, the cruise lines offer special rates to active and retired military. We'd be honored to help you plan your trip.
