Clark Air Base, Philippines, March, 1973: The Fourth of July is a day on which Americans celebrate their freedom, but few could ever appreciate the concept the way Air Force Maj. Ronald J. Webb did when this photo was taken in 1973. Webb was boarding a plane for home after nearly six years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.
