Here is something you can do while celebrating with your family: talk to a veteran about his or her experiences and thank them. Over the years we have had the opportunity to work with several veterans. They loved their country and were willing to sacrifice all in the cause of peace and freedom.
One great veteran, John Lindquist, who passed away a year ago, shared a few experiences flying B-17s and B-24s. You may enjoy this 2-minute video.
Happy Independence Day!
