The Menominee American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 146, reminds Americans that the first Independence Day celebration took place in 1777, Bristol, Rhode Island, and Philadelphia. The Fourth of July did not become a federal holiday until 1870.
On Independence Day, Americans will celebrate our country's freedom with fireworks, family, and friends. Amidst the fun, let's remember what this patriotic holiday actually represents. We celebrate our most important right as American citizens - freedom. We are fortunate to live in the land of the free because of the brave.
Our country is great because of all service members in the Armed Forces of the United States of America for their innumerable contributions in protecting our freedoms, and keeping our nation safe. It is because of their strength and sacrifice that we live in a democratic society. The ALA invites everyone in the community to take a moment and pause to honor those who have fought, and those who continue to fight for our freedom.
Let's hoist up our American flags, wear red, white, and blue attire and proudly show dedication to our nation's veterans, and U.S. military.
