BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement in commemoration of our nation’s independence:

“On the Fourth of July, we gather as North Dakotans and Americans to celebrate our nation’s founding. The anniversary of our independence offers us a chance to reflect not only on the blessings of liberty that we all treasure, but also the sacrifices made by those who have fought and died to secure those blessings. As we celebrate the birth of our country with family and friends, let’s also remember the tremendous debt we owe to the living veterans of today, as well as those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
