Each year RAF Alconbury Air Force Base in England, hosts a patriotic firework show for the American military/DOD/contractor families that work on the bases in the area. However, due to the major cutbacks to all the military installations around the world as well as tightened budgets meant losing the 4th of July fireworks display to some bases.
Thankfully, RAF Alconbury AFB was one of the few bases here in England that was still able to provide the families with a spectacular and patriotic 4th of July firework show. For this, my family and so many others stationed here are grateful.
Our family just happened to have two Spanish exchange students visiting with us, so we were excited to give them the opportunity to see how we Americans celebrate this wonderful holiday!
