This week I am sharing pictures from the 30th annual Independence Day Concert at McConnell-Talbert Stadium  in Warner Robins. The concert opened up with the national anthem and a fly over. It was the Air Force Reserve Band's last concert before their disbanding. They opened for Josh Turner.

The evening featured a fireworks display to cap off the festivities.

On the Fourth of July, the nation will celebrate its birthday. For most of us, it will be filled with family gatherings, festivals and fireworks.

While we enjoy our freedoms here in the states, U.S. military members around the world are patrolling deserts, flying in darkness, navigating the high seas and risking their lives in far-off places like Iraq and Afghanistan.

The following commentary is an attempt to put that aspect of America's independence into perspective and offer an expression of gratitude for all that American warfighters have done and continue to do. Remember Prices Paid for Independence Day

God Bless our troops! Have a safe and happy 4th of July everyone!!!
