From all of us at NAS Oceana, we wish you a very happy Independence Day!
With picnics and barbecues being the traditional methods of celebration, we would like to remind everyone to leave a location cleaner than you found it.
Only one day left to make plans for the Fourth of July!
Historians have long disputed whether Congress actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4 and most have concluded that the Declaration was signed nearly a month after its adoption, on August 2, 1776, and not on July 4 as it is commonly believed.
The holiday remains to be celebrated on the fourth of July. Coincidentally, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration.
