Every year around the first of July, I begin thinking about Independence Day and how the month of July should be referred to as Military Month. While we do celebrate our country's independence, it was afforded to us by all the men and women who died standing up for the rights given to us by our forefathers.

Furthermore, July is inundated with special days that commemorate events and actions representing our different military branches. Let us not forget all the freedoms we enjoy today because of the brave men and women in our military, past and present.

From the birth of our nation to modern-day peacekeeping, the dedication and sacrifice of our military branches have been pivotal in securing the freedoms we cherish.

Let me begin with the very day, that July is renowned for, July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted, marking the birth of our nation. This day is a reminder of the courage and determination of our early patriots (aka Military men and women). Today, the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard continue this legacy of bravery, standing as sentinels of our democracy.

Then there is the Battle of Gettysburg, it was fought from July 1st to -3rd, 1863, and was a turning point in the American Civil War. The valor displayed by Union and Confederate soldiers alike underscores the enduring spirit of American resilience. Our military branches honor this legacy by upholding peace and defending our nation against all foreign and domestic threats.

Remember, on July 11, 1912, Marine Corps Aviation was a crucial element in providing air support and strategic advantage in all conflicts. The Marine Corps, known for its versatility and rapid response, continues to be a formidable force to be reckoned with as they protect all of our American interests globally.

On July 27, 1953, Korean War Armistice Day was signed, ending an intense three-year conflict. Today July 27th honors the sacrifices of those who served in Korea, highlighting the importance of our military's role in maintaining international peace and stability. The ongoing presence of American forces in South Korea underscores our commitment to global security.

The Army Chaplain Corps, established on July 29, 1775, provides spiritual support to our soldiers, ensuring their emotional and mental well-being. This tradition of care and compassion is a testament from our leaders to our troops. Our military, especially the Army Chaplain Corps, brings faith and Christianity to our troops when they need it most, fostering resilience and unity in battle.
