Manchin Wishes West Virginians A Happy, Safe Independence Day

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) issued the following statement in celebration of Independence Day.

“While our Independence Day celebrations may be different this year, we can all safely and responsibly celebrate the founding of our great nation, the freedoms we enjoy, and our nation’s brave servicemembers who have fought to protect our lives here at home and abroad. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has also put our first responders and our health providers on the front lines of a global health crisis that is affecting every American. This weekend while we are celebrating America, let’s all take a moment to thank those who are dedicated to caring for their fellow West Virginians during their time of need. I am proud of our state and her people, today and every day as we work together through this difficult time. I wish every West Virginian a happy Fourth of July, and may God bless you and your families, the wild and wonderful Mountain State, and the United States of America."
