Independence Day

On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence as our nation's founding document. The Declaration proclaims the core principles of our government and our identity as Americans. We are all created free and equal, and possess the same inherent, natural rights.

By adopting the Declaration, the 13 colonies unanimously declared their independence from Great Britain. The brave patriots who drafted the Declaration knew their actions were treasonous, but they refused to be oppressed any longer. Their hope was that this new nation's future generations would enjoy the freedoms they envisioned.

Now, 241 years later, the freedoms the founding fathers envisioned for us continue to require our defense. The men and women of the Armed Forces,and the civilians that support them, play a vital role in preserving our freedoms and keeping the United States safe.

Independence Day is marked by family gatherings, parades, and firework displays to celebrate the beginning of this great country. As you enjoy this time with your family and friends, I encourage you to reread our founding document (www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript), and to take a moment to think about those who continue to fight for the freedoms we enjoy every day.

Be careful in your travels, enjoy our holiday, and remember to always keep safety a priority.

Flag Day

Americans celebrate Flag Day, commemorating the "Stars and Stripes'" adoption as the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. When five more states joined the Union 41 years later, Congress resolved our flag would have thirteen red and white stripes, plus one star for each state. Our current flag dates to July 4, 1960, when Hawaii became the 50th state.

Since its adoption, the American flag has served as a symbol of the hopes, dreams and values we all share as Americans. We revere our flag as a reminder of the sacrifice by generations of heroes who laid down their lives for the freedoms of the American people. Our brave service members have followed it into battle, and fought with the spirit and honor the flag embodies.

Today many Americans celebrate Flag Day by flying the "Star-Spangled Banner" outside businesses and in front of homes, expressing our gratitude to those who fought under our nation's flag. I thank each of you for your contributions to the fight. Please join me in celebrating our national flag's heritage, and honoring our service members who have shaped our culture, our Navy and our nation.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Each May we celebrate the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. In May 1843, the first Japanese immigrants arrived in the United States, and in May 1869 Chinese pioneers helped complete the first Transcontinental Railroad. Asian American and Pacific Islanders bring a rich diversity to our nation. Some 20 million strong, they track their ancestries to nearly 50 countries with over 100 languages and dialects.

This year's theme, "Unite Our Voices by Speaking Together," encourages the various communities to join together to share their vibrant and diverse experiences. By telling stories that elevate the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, we will help overcome misconceptions and stereotypes. The community members' experiences vary greatly, and sharing our individual experiences can help build understanding.

Through times of hardship and in the face of enduring prejudice, these women and men have persisted and forged ahead to help strengthen our Union. Asian American and Pacific Islanders have fought with the United States military in every war since the War or 1812. During the Civil War, Chinese men worked on dozens of Union vessels. Since the Spanish-American War, when the Philippines and other Pacific Islands became U.S. territories, the Navy has traditionally been the service of choice of Filipinos and Pacific Islanders. Currently, 24,743 Asian American and Pacific Islander Sailors are part of one Navy team, including eight admirals, 318 officers, and 659 master chief and senior chief petty officers.

The supply community is enriched by the valuable contributions of countless Asian American and Pacific Islanders, both in uniform and as civilian employees. Serving at home, across the Pacific, and around the world, they carry forward immense institutional knowledge and offer insights from their specialized training and experiences. We proudly employ a workforce with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skills to continue to be ready, resourceful and responsive in serving our customers.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are a vast and diverse community who are helping to write the next chapter of the American story. Please join me as we "Unite Our Voices by Speaking Together," and celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage together.
