Independence Day should be a time when all Americans celebrate our freedom together. To cheapen that gift with partisan displays like the tax-payer funded 4th of July military parade in Washington D.C. dishonors the sacrifices of men and women who protect that freedom with their lives.
On July 1st, ahead of the Trump Administration’s July 4th Military Display – IAVA CEO, Jeremy Butler penned a letter published in TIME: “President Trump Has Planned a Big Military Tribute for the Fourth of July. That’s Not the Best Way to Honor the Troops.”
IAVA is publicly calling on this Administration, Members of Congress, and political candidates to support veterans by passing legislation that helps them — not with parades and speeches.
