Re: “Budget cuts won’t crimp fireworks or annual Freedom Fest at JBLM” (FOB Tacoma blog, 7-1).

If fireworks are so bad for our precious vets, why does Joint Base Lewis-McChord have an Independence Day fireworks show? Why do U.S. military bases across the world normally have fireworks shows?

It’s very disappointing, but typical, that opponents of Independence Day celebrations would use our vets to further there agenda.
