On this day 240 years ago, our country was born. Through will and bloodshed on the battlefield, our forefathers declared their independence from oppression and established an enduring freedom across their new nation.
In the centuries since, the responsibility of defending that freedom has been shouldered by our men and women in uniform. Every day, these heroes and their loved ones sacrifice to ensure our safety. Their essentialness to America’s very existence cannot be overstated.
One of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s guiding tenets is a quotation by President Calvin Coolidge. It says, “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” We remain committed to honoring and supporting our defenders and their loved ones 365 days a year.
As we celebrate our nation this holiday, let us also recognize the generations that have served to protect it. Join us. Make a donation in support of all those who answer the call to service.
God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.
-Gary Sinise Foundation
