INDEPENDENCE DAY SAFETY MESSAGE

ROBERT P. ASHLEY
Major General, USA Commanding

On the 4th of July Americans everywhere celebrate the independence of our great Nation. Many will commemorate our country’s freedom with cookouts, parades, concerts, and firework displays. While we celebrate our Nation’s independence, we must not forget that the freedoms we enjoy have come with a heavy price. I ask all of you to reflect on the sacrifices Americans made over the past 238 years to guarantee the liberties we enjoy today.

While you make your holiday weekend plans, I ask that you keep safety a priority. As is the case with most holiday periods, there will be increased traffic on the roads. Remain vigilant while driving and do not take unnecessary risks such as speeding, texting and driving, and especially drinking and driving.

While fireworks are a part of 4th of July celebrations, be cognizant of local and state laws regarding the use of fireworks. If you will be enjoying the festivities here in Arizona remember there is a significant risk of wildfires throughout the state. Do not do anything to increase that risk.

You are all our Army’s and our Nation’s greatest assets. Your commanders and I want you all to return from this long weekend safely so that you can continue to preserve the freedom we celebrate this weekend.

Remember the sacrifices of those who came before us and the duties and responsibilities that we carry as citizens and Soldiers, alike. Continue to do your part to keep America free. Thank you for your service.

Always Out Front! Army Strong!
