Senator John Hoeven's Statement for Independence Day 2014

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

“The anniversary of our independence provides us all with an opportunity to reflect not only upon the liberties we enjoy, which have provided the solid foundation on which our great nation stands, but also on the blood and toil that has been spent in securing those liberties. Our members of the armed services from the time of our Founding Fathers through today have risked everything defending our lives and our founding principles. We must always remember the tremendous debt we owe to the living veterans of today, and we can best honor them by both fulfilling our promises to them and upholding those principles for which they have sacrificed so much.”
