American Veterans Ball

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 8.11.35 PM-1The Salute to American Veterans Ball was created to provide “all” Veterans of “all” the Armed Forces to participate in an annual service ball similar to our active components. The most common denominator that we’d discovered was that once these veterans transitioned out of their respective service components there was an immediate disconnection with such a traditional and customary event of shared comradeship, yet despite of this disconnection they still live out the values and way of life that was instilled in them as patriotic veterans. An evening to reignite, connect with, and maintain our collective patriotism with our fellow brothers and sisters veterans through this unique event for years to come. Please join us in celebration and in Saluting our past, present, and future Veterans. This event is open to ALL veterans and the general public. Secure your tickets NOW!
