What comes to your mind when you think about the 4th of July? For most of us it's fireworks, parades, a day off work and backyard barbecues. But Freedom is not free. The origins of our country began with war. It was inspired by the greater good of obtaining our freedom from Great Britan. The Fourth of July has been celebrated by public readings of Declaration of Independence from the courthouse steps ever since. But not everyone does this still today, so in case nobody's reading it at your court house, I will read the Declaration of Independence to you or you can play this at your own courthouse. In this special Independence Day edition of Home Front, we start by talking with a Vietnam Veteran and then stay with us for the Declaration.
Colonel Quincy Collins was Born on the 4th of July in 1931, He graduated from the Citidel and became a flight commander with the Air Force as a Second Lieutanant. He was shot down over Vietnam which left him as a prisoner of war for the next 7 1/2 years and provides us with a perspective on freedom and war from one who was on the inside.

Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.

For many Americans, cash is king, but things work differently along the back roads of the American south.
A cash-strapped economy has given rise to a whole new breed of savvy tradesmen who barter for a living. Deep in the heart of Appalachia, these barterers spend their time scouring farms, flea markets, backyards and junkyards for items they can sell at the weekly auction.
DUKES OF HAGGLE takes viewers inside the underground barter and auction economy, where one man’s trash is truly another man’s treasure.
In the foothills of Hickory, North Carolina, four rival barter teams leave no stone unturned in order to find the items that will earn them a weekly paycheck. This comical group remains fiercely competitive as their livelihood depends on finding valuable items to flip for big profits at weekly auctions.
From Prohibition-era kegerators to Civil War swords, from classic Chevy pick-ups to Colonel Sanders weather vanes, these barter sharks go head to head with every tradesman in town to talk the sellers into the most profitable deals. The best swappers in the south only have a few days to fix up their items and flip them at Neal Auction house every Friday night.
