AFA Celebrates Independence Day

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Today we celebrate the 237th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the beginning of the history of the United States of America.

Each year across the country we celebrate the bravery of the patriots who established our freedom. Independence Day is a time to reflect on the journey we have taken as a united nation to preserve this freedom and the vision of our Founders.

AFA remembers the first generation of heroes who defined the American Dream, and pays tribute to those that followed who have fought, served, and sacrificed in the name of liberty. We give thanks to all of the members of our Armed Forces and ask that you remember the many military men and women who continue to ensure our safety at home and abroad.

On this day we are called upon as Americans to fulfill our patriotic duty of perseverance in the face of challenges. May this holiday continue to serve as a reminder of the great achievements our nation has made and the hardships we have overcome in protection of our independence.

We at AFA wish everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July.
