What Does the Fourth of July Mean to You?

It is the patriotic day. What can you say other than that? It is a day to remember service men that have given their lives over the years.


Tom Holman

Weatherford, Texas
Just another work day. That’s the way trucking is. I have to work every holiday but Christmas. It’s also big firecracker day and a good day to be home and in the pool.


Terry Wilson

Dora, Ala.
Good day to be off and to be thankful for all the freedoms I enjoy.


Bill Holland

Millport, Ala.
Freedom. I’m a veteran who spent five years in Germany.


Gus Montengro

Independence. It’s what the United States stands for. It’s like trucking; you’re free to do whatever you want.


Gary Trombley

Patriotism. Independence. Freedom.


Golden Jones

Morristown, Tenn.
I used to be in the Navy. For kids, it’s fireworks, and for adults, it’s usually a day off.


Perry Roberson
TRL

Chesapeake, Va.
A day to spend with your family. If you are not at home, make the best of it wherever you are. There is a lot of traveling, so be careful on the road.


Justin Hill

Day to celebrate freedom.


Jacob Harris

Not really any different for me because I’m on the road almost every holiday making a living.


Andrew Sawyer
Crete Carriers

Madison, Ala.
It means a lot of things, our independence, for one. It is a day to recognize all the veterans – a day to celebrate. Please don’t drink and drive.


Gary Pauly

Cobbtown, Ga.
Freedom. Independence. It is a holiday. The main thing is freedom. I am in the Air Force Reserve, so I am committed to the military. I will go wherever they send me to keep our freedom.


Mark Best

Hattiesburg, Miss.
Spending time with family, picnicking, swimming, baseball and getting away from the truck.

Independence. Just another work day. I don’t get that day off.

Birth of our nation.
