Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
