Happy Independence Day!

I am the granddaughter of Hungarian immigrants who came to the United States in search of new opportunities - while both worked very hard their entire life to provide for their family, I believe they got what they came for - a better life in America.

Two of my uncles and three of my brothers served in the military; they believed in what this country stands for - today I give thanks to all our military who for the past 236+ years have defended the ideals and beliefs of this nation; because of them, we enjoy many freedoms.

I have had the good fortune in my life to travel to many countries all over this great world of ours, but can honestly say, "There's no place like home." I'm proud to be an American.  Happy Birthday USA.
