PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
To the Men and Women of Air Force Space Command,
As Americans, we’re privileged to celebrate the 241st anniversary of our nation’s independence. July 4th carries a special significance to those who continue to defend our land and way of life. Independence Day is also a time of celebration and fun, to include water sports, picnics, and fireworks. It is indeed a great time to spend with friends and family.
I hope you have a great holiday and enjoy some downtime. My only request is you be safe. As you enjoy the holiday weekend, please know the risks associated with your activities and take necessary safety precautions. Be especially careful on the road by driving defensively and sober while taking frequent breaks when traversing long distances. Above all, be smart and alert wingmen to each other.
Thanks for what you do each day for our Air Force and this great country. Have a safe and enjoyable 4th!
JOHN W. RAYMOND
