That is where it all started for us as Americans and our freedom. We have Memorial Day and that's when we tend to remember our troops that have fallen in conflicts or war, but it all started with the Fourth of July for us," Sgt. Jason Parker said.Senior Master Sgt.

And that will continue," said Sgt. Parker.
