Happy Independence Day, America

Posted in isaf, united states, us military by Abbie on 4 July 2010

It may be pessimistic, but July 4th always marks the beginning of the end of summer for me. Then again, I prefer cold weather, so perhaps I’m trying to will fall and winter to get here sooner. Regardless, this does not diminish the importance of this day.

So, Happy Independence Day, America!  And a special thanks to the troops serving near and far, today.

Here are a few links to get us in the spirit:

  • Independence Day 2010 (SWJ)

Links to two organization’s I hope you consider supporting today and throughout the year:

  1. The USO
  2. Adopt a U.S. Soldier

And finally, because I’m incapable of being serious for this long, here’s some etymology of the song, Yankee Doodle.  And to accompany this, one so-bad-it’s-awesome patriotic rendition of Yankee Doodle performed by Suzanne Somers circa 1978, care of Pour Me Coffee.

Happy Fourth of July!
