WRIGHT PATTERSON AFB (WDTN) – Wright-Patt’s Freedom’s Call, canceled last year because of budget cuts, is back this year.

Freedom’s Call will be held June 27 from 4 to 10:30 p.m. at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Gates will open at 4:00.

The cost-free family-orientated patriotic celebration will be capped off that night with a fireworks display starting at 10 p.m.

Base officials told 2 NEWS they saved $300,000 last year when the celebration fell victim to the congressional mandated sequestration. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
