MGM Resorts International will host the United Service Organisations Experience: Salute to the Troops, honouring more than 100 active-duty service members who have been injured in the line of duty, beginning on November 10.
In partnership with USO, American Airlines will fly these honoured guests and their families to Las Vegas for an extended holiday weekend, with MGM Resorts providing accommodations, meals, entertainment and other amenities free of charge.
As with previous years, hundreds of MGM Resorts employees and other supporters will gather to greet the group during a special Wall of Gratitude welcome procession at Mandalay Bay.
“We are deeply grateful for the commitment and sacrifice that members of the armed forces and their families continue to make for our nation,” said MGM Resorts CEO and president Bill Hornbuckle.
“In recognition of their bravery and dedication, we are honoured to extend a world-class guest experience as a tribute to these remarkable heroes.”
Salute to the Troops will feature a variety of activities, events and excursions throughout Las Vegas and southern Nevada, including a welcome dinner, tours of the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon, a visit to Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium, Luxor’s Blue Man Group and more.
