Last Salute Receives “Yellow Ribbon” Award From Tony Orlando at Borgata

Tony Orlando presents Last Salute the “Yellow Ribbon” award. Sgt. at Arms Chuck Knutson accepting.

Last Salute military funeral honor guard and VFW Post 9462 of Absecon were extremely honored to receive the annual “Yellow Ribbon” veteran’s award from Tony Orlando during his concert at the Borgata on August 22nd. The Borgata’s head of special events, Sally Nickel, brought Last salute to the attention of Tony Orlando. Mr. Orlando has been a very big supporter of our nation’s military and its veterans his entire career. His hit song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around the Old Oak Tree” is the reason that Americans place yellow ribbons on trees while loved ones are deployed with the military. The Borgata held this concert and special welcoming ceremony for this year’s Atlantic City Air Show and to honor veterans. We would like to thank them for all their dedication and effort to produce such a top notch event in our military’s honor. It was an amazing experience and we want to wholeheartedly thank Tony Orlando and the Borgata for their recognition of Last Salute. Last Salute is an all-volunteer unit and is seeking additional volunteers to help provide military funeral ceremonies in the Atlantic County area. Contact Last Salute at [email protected]
