About Charlie's Memorial and Veterans Day Shows
Every Memorial and Veterans Day, we devote a segment of my show to remembering the men and women who sacrificed so much to serve their country. They left their homes, their families and their jobs and fought on distant shores for something greater than themselves. Many of them never came home. We owe them a debt we can never fully repay, but we can give them the tribute of memory.
For many Americans, Memorial Day has simply become a three day holiday and an excuse for a cookout. Veterans Day an afterthought. What we ask is this: take a few minutes to remember someone who served and is no longer with us. On my show, we open the lines and ask callers to name who they are remembering along with a brief description of their service. Over the years it has become of the most moving segments we air.
They gave so much. Some gave all. Remember them.
