Troop Salute

The Heroes of Pearl Harbor Day

Today we are not saluting an individual, but a group of service members. This last Saturday was December 7th, and on December 7th, 1941, 77 years ago, American Troops stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii were enjoying a typical sunny Sunday morning.  America was not yet involved in the bloody war raging elsewhere in the world…

The Renko Family of the US Army

Over the holidays American families everywhere will sit down and give thanks for all of the opportunity that we enjoy.  We have the right to live where we want to, to follow our hearts for occupation, hobbies, and interests. And those rights belong to us because many Americans chip in and serve the needs and security of the nation…

Franklin Carter of the US Air Force

I salute troops from every corner of the US and every place in between. We receive submissions from every state in the union. Today, I can definitely say this salute is a first for us. Today we are saluting Master Sergeant Franklin Carter of the United States Air Force. Franklin’s daughter Megan Carter is a P1 listener to this show,…

George HW Bush of the US Navy

How do you measure a man? In America in 1942, the measurement certainly started at joining the service. George Herbert Walker Bush was a very young man in December 1941 when the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor thrust America into World War II. He was just 18 years old, and still in his Senior…

Thomas Logan of the United States Navy

The military is a lot of things to a lot of people.  But most probably don’t think of it as the place to achieve your dreams. But it is exactly that for today’s troop. Today we salute Lieutenant J.G. Thomas Logan of the United States Navy. Lieutenant Logan is a native of Kenmore, Washington and…

Meagan Rodriguez, USMC and Alicia Durham, US Army

Sons look up to fathers who serve.  That goes without saying, and that father-son bond is obviously a special one. I get a lot of salutes from kids honoring their parents.  And I always feel the strength and the quality of that relationship. I can honestly say that the way a daughter looks up to her…

Edward Reiner of the US Navy

I get a lot of salutes from kids honoring their parents.  And I always feel the strength and the quality of that relationship. I can honestly say that the way a daughter looks up to her…

Our Veterans

America is a nation of fighters: a nation of people who demand their freedom, and who are willing to fight for it. Many Americans fully understand and appreciate the contribution that ALL of our troops and all of our services make to our personal freedoms. Not EVERY American can appreciate what the military has done…

A Message from Ariel Atienza of the US Navy

As we approach Veterans Day in America we will all be giving thanks and honoring the men and women who have served this nation. As Americans we know that we owe much of what we have to them. We received a special salute for this Veterans Day from within the service this year. I’m going…

Steve Hurd of the US Marine Corps

There is an unmistakable link between our service men and women and our law enforcement community in America. So many times we receive salutes that tell us about a Soldier, Sailor, or Marine that is now working in Law Enforcement or went into the field after leaving the service. Today we salute Lance Corporal Steve…
