Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (I-WV) released the following statement in celebration of Independence Day.

“Independence Day is a time for us all to put aside our differences and come together as Americans to celebrate our great nation. On this day, we remember the brave heroes who were willing to take up arms, fight for our freedoms and create this great country 248 years ago. We also honor our brave servicemembers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. Their sacrifices prove that American ideals are worth fighting for, and they are an inspiration to us all.
