HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. -- Air Commandos,

I want to thank you for what you do each and every day to secure the freedoms and liberties that make our nation great. It is this freedom that we celebrate over the 4th of July holiday. As we all know, freedom is not something simply gained and never lost; rather, it takes incredible men and women like you to sustain it for all Americans.

Enjoy some much deserved time off with family and friends and keep your thoughts on other Air Commandos who continue the struggle around the globe to sustain the very freedoms we celebrate.

God bless America.

Brad Webb, Lt Gen, USAF
Commander
