The AP celebrates Independence Day with the troops!

It's just as happy as one would imagine:

It's Staff Sgt. Edgar Covarrubias' second Fourth of July in Iraq. No family barbecue, no fireworks, but Covarrubias says he'll call his mom, wife and kids to share the day anyway.

[...]

The holiday is even leaner at smaller outposts closer to the violence, where it comes with a can of meat, some cookies and a job not yet done.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, they didn't note that 1,215 soldiers re-enlisted yesterday until one of the last paragraphs.
