We're fortunate the 4th of July falls on a Friday this year because Friday's our day for honoring hometown heroes.
This week a red white and blue salute and welcome home to Lieutenant Beau Baer of Bushland.
He recently returned from a 10 month tour of duty in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
His wife Shirlene and their kids Chloe and Creede say they are blessed and thankful to have him home.
Ditto from us Lieutenant, and thank you for your service.
