Since its debut in 2017, the National Salute to America's Heroes has become the largest U.S. Military celebration and remembrance event during Memorial Day weekend and is a part of Hyundai's long-term commitment to supporting the U.S. military. As a part of this commitment and for a second year in a row, Hyundai will be donating $50,000 to Folds of Honor to provide scholarships to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service members.

"Thanks to the support of Hyundai, we are able to create a national signature event that honors and pays its respects to the men and women of our military and first responders," said Mickey Markoff, executive producer, Hyundai Air & Sea Show. "There is no better time than Memorial Day weekend to pay tribute to our military, first responders, and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our freedom."

This year, The National Salute to America's Heroes™, in collaboration with the U.S. Army, proudly presents the U.S. Army SaluteFest™, a spectacular addition to the Hyundai Air & Sea Show®.
