LUBBOCK,TX- The 4th of July is about American independence. 

The work done by the U.S. military works to keep those freedoms for us. 

So this 4th of July, Jinks White is giving back to our service men and women. 

"We have a special item, it is called a 'fiery echo' it is a five dollar fountain," White said "And all the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Foundation."

White and his family have been running the TNT firework stand off 82nd and Avenue P for the last 18 years. 

And it was his suggestion that got the partnership between TNT and Wounded Warrior Project up and running. 

"I approached our director and she took it to the central office in Atlanta," White said."They approved it this year for us to do this." 

White said it is the least he can do for the people who put it all on the line, like his son-in-law Frank Morrison. 

"It is a great way for us to support our troops and give those guys that have been wounded and are in need give them some support," White said. "So we are really happy that TNT has decided to do that." 

White's stand is open until midnight tonight, or you can visit any TNT stand in Lubbock.
