3 November 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- MGM Resorts International will host the United Service Organizations Experience: Salute to the Troops, honoring more than 100 active-duty service members who have been injured in the line of duty beginning Friday, 10 November. Now in its 13th year, the five-day celebration will take place at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

In partnership with USO, American Airlines will fly these honored 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 & President Bill Hornbuckle. "In recognition of their bravery and dedication, we are honored 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.
