In honor of Independence Day, Fox News Media will air its annual Proud American series, featuring “an array of patriotic-themed programming” that highlight stories of American patriotism, including those of U.S. military veterans.

The programming, presented by Tunnel to Towers and Prevagen, will kick off on Sunday with Johnny Joey Jones, veteran and author of Fox News Books’ newest title “Unbroken Bonds of Battle.” Jones will join co-hosts Will Cain and Rachel Campos-Duffy on Fox & Friends Weekend.

Jones, Cain and Campos-Duffy will also co-host Fox & Friends on Tuesday, July 4, when they will be joined by members of the military, including retired Navy Seal and co-founder of Legacy Expeditions, Mike Sarraille.

“Army veteran and barbecue seasoning business owner Jason Murff will also join the plaza for a live grilling demo. Additionally, musical artist Katie Linendoll will perform her hit song ‘Your Hands’ live on the Square,” Fox News Media told American Military News in an email.

The Proud American series main event will include a two-hour live special called “A Big Independence Day Celebration” on Tuesday, July 4, from 8-10 p.m. ET. The event will be co-hosted by Fox News Congressional Correspondent Aishah Hasnie, Johnny Joey Jones, Fox & Friends First’s Carley Shimkus, and Fox Across America’s Jimmy Failla.

The celebration will also include live fireworks from New York City and Washington, D.C., as well as “patriotic musical performances, and themed packages highlighting stories of American freedom.”

After the special on Tuesday evening from 10-11 p.m. ET, Fox will present “Home of the Brave.”

“Hosted by FOX & Friends Weekend co-host and retired Army Infantry Captain Pete Hegseth, the program will feature FOX News personalities as they spotlight those influential figures who have made them proud to be Americans,” Fox News Media said. “Contributing throughout the hour will be correspondent Benjamin Hall, The Story’s Martha MacCallum, Cross Country’s Lawrence Jones, Outnumbered Co-Host Emily Compagno and former Staff Sergeant Johnny ‘Joey’ Jones.”
