Independence Day or the Fourth of July as it is also known as would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our United States veterans. The Fourth of July is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence which allowed the United States to become free from the Kingdom of Great Britain, This document marked the commencement of the Revolutionary war, a war fought by the brave men and women who served our budding country. Many of the men were farmers and the women were mothers, but they both heeded the call of freedom and sacrificed so much to bring our country the freedom we now enjoy. While the men fought the battles with guns, the women nursed the wounded, fed the soldiers and even sometimes snuck into the battles to fight alongside the soldiers. These men and women had very important roles in our great country’s past, as they do currently! Our Veterans fight for freedom and they always have, the United States’ independence wouldn’t be, or have been, possible without the service of our incredible veterans! LowVARates.com honors the men and women who have served our country. We invite all to celebrate this holiday by remembering those who made the United States the country that it is today by actively participating in community activities.
