JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate our freedom.

We spoke to a local veteran who served in the Marine Corps for 20 years.

He tells News 5 he is happy to see the American flag raised high and takes pride in serving our country.

"It makes me feel proud to have this type of liberty that we can pray, we can honor God, we can love one another. We don't have to hide," said James McDaniel.
