“This is a rather remarkable call and I wish it went longer than it did. Eight months ago Larry, a former Navy SEAL who did four tours in Iraq and four tours in Afghanistan, lost his right leg, part of his right arm, some of his fingers, and was disfigured on his face.

He told Rush that while he was coming off medication while recouping in the hospital he as able to listen to his radio show on a friends radio. And then he said something profound that I’m sure humbled Rush quite a bit: that while he was giving up on life, listening to Rush was propping him up because he realized there was somebody in this country who still gave a damn. Wow. Just amazing.”
