Congressman Jim Matheson, 4th Congressional District of Utah Dear Friend, This week we celebrate the Fourth of July and our country�s 237th birthday.� It is also a time to reflect on our rich American history and the many sacrifices made on our behalf. This Independence Day we express our deepest gratitude to those who serve our country around the world in the name of freedom and democracy. For centuries, Americans have put themselves in harm�s way in order to defend our nation. They have been separated from loved ones, undergone terrible hardships and faced deadly peril. We must never forget the sacrifice they - and their families - make to safeguard our cherished freedoms. As your Representative, I spend the Fourth of July reflecting on the honor and privilege of working on behalf of you and your families, ensuring your concerns and priorities are heard in Washington. I wish you and your family a safe celebration this holiday. Whether you�re attending a neighborhood cookout, festive parade, or local firework display here are some tips to help you enjoy this 4th of July holiday. � - *Keep fireworks safety in mind.* Before enjoying fireworks this year, be sure to review fireworks safety [link 1] recommendations and local firework restrictions [link 2]. � - *Fly the flag.* You can show your American pride by flying the flag this Independence Day. If you would like to request a commemorative flag flown over the Capitol, please contact my office [link 3]. � - *Thank a service member or veteran*.

It is their heroism that has paved the remarkable path of freedom's march. Let us take the time to thank our active duty military and veterans [link 4] for their service and sacrifice. I am honored to serve in Congress on behalf of Utah families like yours.
