Murkowski Wishes Alaskans a Happy Fourth of July

Today U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) shared the following message with Alaskans on Independence Day:

“Happy Independence Day, Alaska! July 4th is a day when Americans join in celebration. Whether you are watching the big parade in Wasilla, joining in the egg toss in Wrangell, or racing Mount Marathon in Seward, Alaskans know how to celebrate. But as we come together today, let us remember the freedoms and liberties we enjoy as Americans are not free. The men and women of our armed forces put their lives on the line daily to ensure our liberty and independence. We must keep their service and sacrifice in mind and honor our veterans as we observe this July 4th, our nation’s 240th birthday. I encourage every Alaskan to take a moment to reflect on the ideals that formed our nation and continue to set us apart from the rest of the world. On this day, and every day, I am honored to represent Alaska in the United States Senate. Have fun and be safe!”
