Happy 4th of July From The World's Only Special Operations Forces Studios

Posted by David Sears (Creator)

As originally published at SOF Studios.


Southern Pines, North Carolina July 4th, 2013 - Special Operations Forces (SOF) Studios would like to wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy Independence Day.

For the past 237 years, Americans from all walks of life have come together on this historic day with family, comrades, and friends to celebrate the birth of our nation, and the exceptionalism She embodies.

John Adams, Founding Father and the second President of the United States, famously wrote to his wife Abigail: "[America's Independence] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance" "It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."

For over two centuries, Americans have selflessly committed their lives and families to service of country, ensuring that we as a free people retain our independence and liberty from tyranny and oppression the world over. Because of the brave sacrifice of these Heroes, America remains the longest standing beacon of freedom and liberty mankind has ever known.

SOF Studios, in unison with every citizen that lives with a love of country in their heart, salutes each one our active duty and veteran Armed Forces members for their commitment to excellence through honor and sacrifice.

      We Brits don't tend to celebrate the 4th. Not a particulalrly good time for us...

      Still, hope all y'all (if I got the context right) had a good one!

      This means a lot to me as I am in Afghanistan right now. As the Fourth winds down here I think I speak for everyone in the 100% volunteer force that this country boasts when I say, "Thank you and we will be home soon"
