Freedom isn't Free

Today is a day to celebrate, spend time with family and friends, and hopefully enjoy an extra day off work.

But…it’s important to remember what we are celebrating! We are celebrating our freedom.

Today has been considered a federal holiday since 1941, but the celebrations started much earlier. On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence. Two days later, the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence drafted by Thomas Jefferson.

Our freedoms come at a price. Every day, brave men and women fight to keep our country safe so we can enjoy days like today. Throughout history, many of those soldiers never returned home. 

Today, take time to celebrate and remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Have fun and enjoy the day!

Happy Independence Day from all of us at PGT!
