RSM Celebrates the Fourth of July
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION |
The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, has been a federal holiday in the U.S. since 1941, but the tradition of celebrating the day goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution.
Here’s a quick history review: On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence. Two days later, delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson. Since 1776, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
RSM’s Stars & Stripes employee network group (ENG), along with our other 10 ENGs and the rest of our nearly 10,000 people nationwide, would like to wish you and yours a fun and safe Fourth of July as you celebrate our independence, thanks in large part, to those who serve and those who have served our country.
VALOR focuses on recruitment, community service, leadership development and business development of our military service members.
