Many will be celebrating America’s independence and the veterans who fought for it this holiday weekend. But some Ohioans might also do something that causes those same veterans a great deal of grief.

Dayton celebrated Independence Day with 4th of July fireworks at Riverscape Park last night, and tonight look out for fireworks displays in Yellow Springs, Moraine, Englewood and at the Centerville Americana Festival. There are also displays at King’s Island and Waynesville.

Hitting an official show is a good idea, because some experts are recommending against backyard fireworks—saying they may not be legal, and that they can be disturbing or even traumatic for veterans.
