I had a great time attending the Independence Day Celebration at Country Village. It was humbling to see so many of our service men and women in attendance, both active and veterans. On this day we remember the sacrifice made by so many and those who continue to do so to safeguard our freedoms. It is also a time to remember what our veterans and active duty military personnel are protecting and what our great country was founded on and is that all men and women are created equal and have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It was also an honor to participate in the parade with family and friends including Hank Trueba, John J Chavez, Cory Bellinger, and Dean Bellinger. Happy Independence Day!
