To me 4th of July is a celebration of Freedom we have in the USA. I would like to take a moment to thank all the men and woman that are fighting for our freedom and their families. I personally know how hard it is on the families two special soldiers in my life our currently deployed-Brandon Brazil and Dan Caldwell! God speed home.We can’t wait for this war to be over and you be home for good!

Nothing says a celebrations better than a banner to me, plus I have tons of 4 x 4 coasters! LOL!
