As we gather for this Fourth of July weekend, it is important to remember those combat veterans around us. 

Fourth of July fireworks can have unintended consequences for veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. 

The booming sound can send some into full combat mode, which is why more are now speaking out. 

Local veterans would ask that you warn them ahead of time before lighting off the firecrackers.
