Message to the Troops

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2004 – From Mary Jo Myers

One of the best parts about my husband's (Joint Chiefs Chairman Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers) job is our opportunity to visit our people in uniform around the world.

And since we can't visit everybody, I'm delighted to have this opportunity to thank every soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and Coast Guardsman who's serving and helping to protect the freedoms that we cherish so dearly.

Especially on this Fourth of July I think all Americans will remember these freedoms and our democracy, and our Independence Day will be even more special.

And a special thanks to all those families around the world who are also sacrificing, because they also serve.

So God bless each and every one of you, and God bless America.
