Obama will open up the South Lawn July 4th for a barbecue with the troops. He’ll make a speech and probably mingle, and then likely watch the fireworks from the Truman Balcony. A nice gesture toward those who are sacrificing so much for us.
From the White House:
On Monday, the First Family will celebrate the Fourth of July by hosting military heroes and their families for an Independence Day celebration with a barbeque, concert and a view of fireworks on the South Lawn. Staff and their families from throughout the Administration will also attend this event for the concert and fireworks viewing. The President will deliver remarks. His remarks will be pooled press. The event will be streamed live on www.WhiteHouse.gov/live.
