As many Americans minds turn to fireworks and hot dogs this Fourth of July, the American Rifleman Television crew is on the ground in Luxembourg and France filming for the next season. While the shows we are shooting will be primarily about the Americans who fought in the Great War, we took a few minutes to stop by Am Aastert to remember a very special American soldier who fought for the freedom we celebrate today. 

If you don't know the story of Medal of Honor recipient Day G. Turner, you should. Read it here.
