This morning, we’re paying tribute to all the men and women who have or currently serve our country in honor of Memorial Day.

Listeners called in to salute a veteran in their life to remember all that they gave in defending the U.S. by giving their name, branch of service  and where they served to give them all the recognition they deserve!

Listen to some of our listeners’ salutes to the troops and make sure to add your salute to a veteran in your life in the comments below! We’ll be adding more calls throughout the morning, so make sure to check back often!
