Troop Salute

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…

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

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.

Today we salute Lance Corporal Steve…

Robert Coryell of the US Navy

We have honored troops here who are fresh-faced recruits heading off to boot camp for the first time.  We have also honored veterans of just about every American war in the 20th century, and service members who served the nation during all parts of the last century. Today we are saluting a Sailor who would…

Tom Durski of the US Air Force

Soldiers save lives: we’ve all heard that about soldiers on the battle field but today’s soldier saved a life off the battle field.  And that person he saved wants you to hear all about it. Today we salute Staff Sergeant Tom Durski of the United States Air Force. Tom is just 25 years old and…

Bryan Jenkins, Thomas Walker, and Antonio Garcia of the US Army

On Sunday October 20, 2019 America lost three of her sons to a tragic training accident. We salute troops here because we appreciate what they do for us, and we salute them for accepting the risk of service, so that we all can live in a free America. Today we salute Sergeant First Class Bryan…

Vincent Cortese of the US Navy

It’s never too late to say Thank You. It’s never too late to show respect and let the world know how proud you are of your service member. Even after they pass, your thanks and respect are a powerful message to others who have served, and others who are serving now. Today we are saluting…
