Today we take a moment to appreciate our freedoms that are and have been protected everyday by our military.

Sports teams around the country have helped these men and women surprise their families with incredibly emotional reunions. Today we celebrate the Fourth of July by honoring the men and women of the armed forces who have served and currently serve this country.
