I am an American Airman.

Americans have celebrated the Fourth of July for 241 years. It’s a reminder of our freedom and liberty, and a symbol of hope.

I am a warrior.

We fought to win our independence from our oppressors and we won. Why? Because we are a nation willing to defend what is right.

I have answered my nation’s call.

Airmen across the globe uphold American values and live by their core values: integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.

I am an American Airman.

Enjoy this holiday weekend and be proud. We work hard, we are innovative, and we are American.
