MARYVILLE – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement in celebration of Independence Day:

“It is easy to take our independence for granted and forget the great courage and wisdom of our Founders, but today is for celebrating the hard-fought battles and remarkable principles that continue to shape our nation. Today, our service men and women continue to fight to protect our nation and its principles and its freedom, and I look forward to taking some time today to pause in gratitude for their ongoing sacrifice."
