My husband, a Korean War veteran, and I were very touched and impressed by our president’s perfectly planned Independence Day program. The tank parade and jet fly-overs and the exhibition of the Blue Angels all gave a feeling of security and safety for our country.

The patriotic music by the military choruses and bands was beautiful, especially the Battle Hymn of the Republic. The whole program should make us all “proud to be an American,” in the words of Lee Greenwood.
