Honoring Those Who Serve

Independence Day in the United States of America commemorates July 4, 1776, when the Continental Congress officially adopted the final version of the Declaration of Independence, our nation’s most cherished symbol of liberty.

Throughout our history, America’s sons and daughters have willingly laid down their lives to protect our nation and secure its freedoms. Today, we continue to rely on our all-volunteer forces. The greatness of our republic is founded in their selfless sacrifice. On the Fourth of July, and every day, we honor and remember their service to our nation.

When returning home from conflict, these brave men and women in the armed forces face a lot of challenges; living with the wounds of war, PTSD, securing jobs and, above all, finding their new mission as civilians. The transition from the front lines to the home front can be difficult, but there are many organizations that help to ease the burden of the military-to-civilian transition process. Find out how you can get involved and make a difference in a military family’s life today.

The 2018 A Capitol Fourth honored our military men and women with a tribute by the star of Broadway’s Carousel, Renée Fleming. Her inspiring performance of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” was dedicated to our troops and veterans and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom.
The 2019 A Capitol Fourth featured a performance by recovering wounded warriors from MusiCorps, joined by John Stamos on drums. These talented musicians and inspiring veterans highlighted the power of music to heal and rehabilitate.

For those who’ve served, transitioning from the front lines to the home front can be difficult, but there are many ways veterans can continue to serve after their active duty is done. Hear the story of one veteran who has found his new mission.
