Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Our Fourth of July celebrations would not be possible if not for the courage and sacrifices made by our Armed Forces.

Members of the military were honored with a special program at Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church in North Fargo. The 9th annual Salute to America featured a patriotic song sing along, film clips from past wars and stories from veterans. The program finished off with America's official march, Stars and Stripes Forever.

Jack Tietgens, Former Happy Hooligan: “I have an opportunity along with my family and our country to celebrate the independence that we have and being American and that's what we are celebrating that today.”

A free will offering was taken for the Wounded Warrior Project.
