As we prepare for the 4th of July Celebration, you should know that your
patriotic service is Our Nation's best defense. Our founding fathers laid
America's foundation with the words, ideas and principles of the Declaration
of Independence, but Our Nation's defense depends on you building upon that
foundation with your service. Your service fortifies our resolve to protect
Our basic principles of Liberty, Freedom and Equality. Your service
strengthens Our Military, Our Community, Our Nation. As we celebrate this
4th of July, let us be proud of what this day means to us. Make sure the
words, the ideas and the principles of the Declaration of Independence will
never fade. Thank you for your service. Thank you for your support.

Thank you again for your service to Fort AP Hill and Our Nation. Please
remember SAFETY in all you do and enjoy your time with Friends and Family.
