The skies above military bases across the country will not be filled with dazzling pyrotechnic creations this holiday weekend – thanks to sequestration.

Bases large and small have canceled their fireworks displays and Fourth of July celebrations because of lack of money.

Independence Day celebrations have been scrapped at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and at the Army's Fort Bragg, both in North Carolina.
