First lady Melania Trump gave a shoutout to members of the U.S. military in a Fourth of July tweet.

"We are the land of the free because of the brave," Trump wrote Tuesday. "Thank you to the heroes who serve!"

President Trump and his wife are spending the holiday at the White House with military families — a tradition that presidents have followed for decades.

The couple will host a picnic for military families on the South Lawn, then watch fireworks from the Truman Balcony.
