Time to put on your Red, Wild and Blue, America, to celebrate the 4th of July! Tune in to Sportsman Channel all day long on July 4th to celebrate their Salute To Service. What better way to celebrate American freedom than by being outside enjoying God’s green earth? It honors those who sacrifice so much to keep us free! God bless our U.S. military, our vets, and all who support them! I love that you’re so proud to be an American.

Featured programming includes a two-hour block of back-to-back episodes of Saving Private K-9, hosted by R. Lee Ermey, as well as back-to-back episodes of Amazing America with Sarah Palin. NRANews Cam & Co. also will air a special July 4th hour-long block featuring Skull Bound TV host Jana Waller along with host Cam Edwards.
Additionally, Southern Game Calls (SGC) presents “The Resistance” sponsored by Mojo Outdoors. Mojo teams up with AHERO Foundation, an organization that connects veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with other war veterans and patriotic members of local communities through outdoor and social activities. The hosts accompany two wounded veterans and America’s finest Marines to South Africa on a safari.
The Independence Day Celebration also will follow three competitors at the United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) Small Arms Championship in Fort Benning, Ga. The USAMU hosts its event disguised as a competition.
Award winning actor and veterans rights advocate Gary Sinise returns to Sportsman Channel, appearing throughout the day in his role as spokesperson for the network’s Salute to Service initiative – an ongoing multimedia effort to celebrate American servicemen and women, and raise awareness of issues and opportunities facing all the men and women who serve this great country. Launched in 2013, the program spans everything from series programming and documentaries to social media and editorial. Salute to Service takes center stage on Sportsman Channel during every major holiday that commemorates the U.S. military’s sacrifices and successes, including Memorial Day, July 4th and Veterans Day. In expanding its content and coverage in 2014, Sportsman Channel’s initiative reflects its audience’s strong connection to military service, stories, people and patriotism.
Sportsman will air video vignettes – courtesy of the Department of Defense – from active military serving throughout the world. The salutes will offer an innovative chance for active military personnel to connect with their families back home through multiple media sources including a second screen application. Viewers can actively participate by tweeting messages of encouragement, pride and why they are so wild about being American by using the hashtag #RedWildBlue and watch them live on-air throughout the marathon programming.
Sportsman Channel’s Independence Day Celebration airs on July 4 at Noon-8 p.m. ET. Here’s the special programming schedule:
