Albany- As we celebrate our independence this weekend, it's a good time to remember the people who fought to keep our country free.

Morningside Assisted Living home in Albany centered their Fourth of July celebration around honoring their veterans and spouses of veterans. Chief Warrant Officer Greg Weeks was there to honor 24 veterans for their service.

"This is our independence," said program director Joan-Marie Barcus. "This is our freedom and many of the people in this building fought for our freedom."

Morningside holds these kinds of programs for its residents so they know that the sacrifices they made for our country haven't been forgotten.
