Liberty Island has been closed the last eight months due to damages caused by Superstorm Sandy. But with the help of service rangers all the way from Alaska and California, the Statue of Liberty reopened to the public just in time for yesterday's Fourth of July celebrations.

Park Service Ranger John Warren joins the show today.
