On June 27, Embassy Bern hosted its annual Independence Day celebration, commemorating the 242nd anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which created a new nation known as the United States of America. We celebrated with great friends, delicious food, and incredible music by the U.S. Naval Forces Europe Band “Flagship Combo” and singer Caroline Quinn.
In his speech addressing the guests at our #july4bern party, Ambassador McMullen looked back on his first half year as U.S. Ambassador in Bern and highlighted the vibrant Swiss-U.S. relationship, our shared values, and strong economic bond.
