One of the biggest events of the Atlantic City Air Show week, is the Borgata’s annual Salute to Veterans and Tony Orlando concert. In addition to a cocktail reception with great food and drink, Tony puts on a great concert. He also is an amazing supporter of the military and veterans so he takes time during the concert to bring air show performers and veterans on stage to be recognized. This annual event has also become the venue at which Tony presents his highly regarded “Yellow Ribbon” award. Last year, Galloway’s own Last Salute Military Funeral Honor Guard was honored to receive this esteemed award.
This year the award was presented to Rita Cosby a well known TV news anchor that has been all over the world with our troops and has continually provided support to veterans and veterans organizations. Sgt. at Arms Chuck Knutson of Last Salute was proud to escort Rita on to the stage and help Tony present her with award.
This year colors were presented by the 177th color guard and the National Anthem was sung by Tech Sgt. Eric Anderson also of the 177th.
