In partnership with MGM Resorts International and American Airlines, the USO flew in more than 100 wounded warriors and their guests to Las Vegas over Veteran’s Day weekend for a five-day celebration at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

MGM Resorts provides accommodations, meals, entertainment and other amenities, also free-of-charge. As with previous years, hundreds of MGM Resorts employees and other supporters gathered to greet the group during a special “"wall of gratitude” welcome procession upon their arrival at Mandalay Bay.

“We are incredibly grateful for the dedication to service that members of the armed forces and their families have made for our country and all of us,” said MGM Resorts CEO & President Bill Hornbuckle. “It is with awe and appreciation of their courage and sacrifice that we celebrate these heroes by providing them a world-class guest experience.”

Salute to the Troops featured 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, a live musical performance by the Lt. Dan Band on Fremont Street, and a private steak dinner at Tropicana Hotel hosted by the Robert Irvine Foundation
