It’s one of the biggest July 4th festivals in the country, but because of budget cuts, the Fort Bragg celebration was cancelled. This year it’s back and better than ever thanks to the help of comedian, Larry the Cable Guy.

Command Sgt. Major Yolanda Tate is the Fort Bragg spokesperson. She joined Larry on Fox and Friends this morning to talk about the surprise awaiting the soldiers.

“It’s going to be fun,” Larry said. “By the time we leave here, me and Sgt. Tate are going to have barbecue sauce all over us.”
