Capito Wishes West Virginians a Happy Fourth of July

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (WV-02) released the following statement on the Fourth of July.

“I am sincerely honored to join West Virginians in celebrating the 237th anniversary of our country’s independence.  Today is an opportunity to show our thanks to the great heroes of our nation.  Our military men and women understand what it means to believe in freedom so strongly that they risk their lives for it every day.  Their service inspires all of us, and they are the reason we can celebrate this day so freely.  Our nation was founded on the ideals of a true democracy, and I cannot think of a better cause for which to fight.  

“On this day, we commemorate an occasion that we often take for granted.  As we spend time with friends and family today, we must not forget the sacrifices that were made so we can stand as one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
