Have a happy and safe Fourth of July.

(Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Chad Runge / Digital)

Keep in mind a few lines of Walt Whitman when you see the stars and stripes displayed today:

I hear and see not strips of cloth alone;
I hear the tramp of armies, I hear the challenging
sentry;
I hear the jubilant shouts of millions of men—I hear
LIBERTY!

Chat among yourselves. We’ll be back on Friday.
