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.
