The 4th of July is celebrated across the country with parades, festivals, and fireworks. Please remember that we live in the Land of the Free because of the Brave.
My cousin’s son-in-law was recently promoted to Major in the United States Air Force and it seemed appropriate that the ceremony was held on the Friday before the long 4th of July weekend. This is a congratulations card to celebrate his achievement. He is truly one of the brave, having served multiple deployments to the Middle East. Thanks for your service, Philip! Pretend to be surprised when this card arrives in your mailbox. 🙂

Next time you see a soldier in uniform, I encourage you to tell them thanks for their service. I don’t think they will every get tired of hearing those words!
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping!
