Las Cruces, NM (July 4, 2013) – Today, U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce issued the following statement recognizing Independence Day:

“Today, as we observe our Independence Day, I encourage my fellow New Mexicans to take a moment to join me in remembering and praying for our men and women in uniform, and all those families with loved ones serving in defense of freedom.  We are free and can celebrate today because of their sacrifice.  Today, and every day, I am proud to be an American, as we reflect on the freedoms and opportunities that we are so blessed to enjoy as Americans.  America is a shining light of liberty and hope for the world, and millions have found freedom and a better life in our great nation.”

Congressman Pearce will participate in July 4th celebrations in New Mexico, including the annual Las Cruces Electric Light Parade, and the Silver City 4th of July Parade.  For details, contact Congressman Pearce’s office at 855-4-PEARCE.
