Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays for several reasons; food, fireworks and family. But for me, the day is about reflecting on the miracle of America's birth and those who fought against tyranny.

It's also a moment to remember that many soldiers and their families are celebrating their country's birth apart from each other.

Our Hometown Hero partner presents this tribute to those who have served America and her people, as well as those who fight today.
