“America was not built on fear; America was built on courage, on imagination, and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” — Harry S. Truman
America is a melting pot of different cultures. It’s a country that knows no bounds when it comes to civic freedoms. A place where individuals can be free to be whoever they choose to be. And a land that provides a myriad of opportunities for not just its people, but for others as well.
And since Independence Day is just around the corner, most of us are wondering: what can we do to show our beloved country just how much we love and appreciate it?
Watch Films that Encourage Your Love for America
Movies like Saving Private Ryan, Apollo 13, 1776, Lincoln, the Captain America Series, and Born on Fourth of July are just some of the many films that bring out the patriot in us.

Connect With a Soldier or Veteran

You can invite them over for a barbeque or even dinner. They’ll appreciate the gesture. Our soldiers make up only 1 percent of the country. Yet, they risk their lives to protect 99% of the population.
