The Fourth of July takes on a special significance when our friends and family members are in the military. We understand in a very personal way the sacrifices generations of men and women have made to build this great country. Today we think of all those who are serving our country overseas, far from our picnics and fireworks. We especially remember the soldiers of the 108th MP Company out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, who are still many months away from returning from Iraq.
This “Until Then” video tribute was sent to me during my husband’s first deployment to Iraq in 2006. If the angelic voices of the Brigham Young University choirs singing “Homeward Bound” don’t tug at your heart, then the images of our military men and women certainly will. Happy Independence Day!
