Celebrate with safety. Celebrate with respect for others.
We at Dapkus Fireworks are proud of and honor of all our military veterans who served our country. Many of them were active combat veterans who were exposed to a daily barrage of gunfire or loud explosions of which many witnessed horrific and unforgettable memories. The use of fireworks around the 4th of July is normally the traditional celebration we express for our freedom... the freedom those veterans who suffer from PTSD fought and died for.
If you have a neighbor who is a veteran, you might want to ask them if fireworks startle or alarm them. It is one of the most respectful acknowledgments you can offer a veteran.
If that is the case, we do offer some fireworks that only produce color but no noise. Most of them can be found in our fountain or sparkler section. Veterans with a valid military ID , are also eligible for a 10% military discount.
