Hugh Hewitt: A Heartfelt Salute

The dangerous world we are looking at today serves as an appropriate backdrop for our expression of gratitude for those who have died in the service of our nation.

From the time of our nation’s founding to today, well over 1.2 million Americans have paid the ultimate price in the service of our country.

Today is a day for us to say, “thank you.” It is also a day for us to dedicate ourselves.

In 1863 Abraham Lincoln called our country an “unfinished work.” And, in many respects, we remain an unfinished work.

Our commitment—the commitment of “the living”—to the values and freedoms our honored veterans fought for makes clear that they did not die in vain.

To those who have served or are serving today: A grateful nation says, “thank you.”

To those listening who have a loved one who died for this great cause: A special thanks to you—and a heartfelt civilian salute from me (and all my friends here at the Salem Media Group).

Happy Memorial Day.

Hugh Hewitt: Not Your Typical Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend typically serves as a kick-off for the summer months ahead.

Yes: This year it still holds that spot on our calendar, but—no matter where you are in this great country—this holiday weekend will not be normal.

Whether you’re somewhat back to normal, socializing and socially-distanced or isolating at home, take some time to consider the ultimate sacrifice made by so many on behalf of the nation we love.

Consider as well the many who have paid a very high price, short of dying.

If you can, please consider starting with those who serve the wounded and serve the surviving family members. Start with the Semper Fi Fund and the Fisher House Foundation.

Look them up.

Support them.

Support—especially—the families in your world who’ve paid a heavy price for their service to the nation.

We are debtors to those who serve, those who fight, those who die.

A grateful nation says, “Thank you.”
