ALBANY, GA – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released a statement regarding Independence Day.

“The Fourth of July has always been a time for communities to reflect on the journey of this great nation. As we celebrate our nation’s birth, we must never forget the provisions of justice, freedom, and equality set forth in the dreams of our forefathers as established in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. We must also never forget the many service members who have dedicated their lives to protect this land. I would like to send a warm greeting to these brave members and their families at home or overseas this 4th of July. Moreover, I hope all Americans have a fulfilling and memorable Independence Day!”
