The 4th of July commemorates America's Independence Day and we celebrate the freedom that our brave countrymen fought for so many centuries ago. On this day, families come together to enjoy each other's company during the long holiday weekend.

However, there are some families who cannot, since many soldiers remain abroad protecting our great nation. The separation takes a toll on not only the soldiers, but on their families as well. 

We have selected 30 of the best quotes to honor the brave spouses in the army on the Fourth of July. To the husband and wives who cannot be home for Independence Day, be sure to find any way to contact your loved ones this holiday.
