As we celebrate our independence from England we want to make sure our friends across the Pond know that we consider them family. I mean these are the people who gave the United States corgis for pete's sake, what's not to love them!
But more importantly we want to celebrate our men and women serving the United States in our armed forces and their support service personnel, both past and present. They are the ones for whom our freedom comes from on a daily basis.
So hats off to all the people of the United States for the freedom we enjoy, to those who make it possible and for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
