Statement of Sen. Alexander Honoring July 4th, 2006

Posted on June 30, 2006

“On July 4, 1776, our nation was born. But our independence was not fully won until 1781 with the surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown and the end of the Revolutionary War. Just as the first Americans fought bravely for our freedom then, the men and women of our Armed Forces are fighting for our safety and for the freedom of others around the world today. On this July 4th, as we celebrate our Independence Day, let us also honor those who are fighting the War on Terror so that we can continue to enjoy our freedom.”
