"Salute Our Troops not only provides an opportunity to thank our
nation's heroes, but is an outlet to help them deal with the
hardships of recovery and the stress it places on their families in a
positive way," said Patricia Driscoll, president and executive
director of the Armed Forces Foundation. "Now more than ever it is
critical to give back to our wounded warriors and their families and
provide them with the support they need. We can't thank Dr. Miriam
and Sheldon Adelson and The Venetian staff enough for opening up
their hearts to our wounded service members and their families and
creating such a once in a lifetime opportunity."  
Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson, the chairman and CEO of Las Vegas
Sands, will loan their aircraft to fly the wounded warriors from
Walter Reed and Fort Belvoir Military Medical Centers in Washington
D.C. to Las Vegas, where they will be met with a police motorcade to
escort them to The Palazzo. A cheering crowd of guests and
Venetian|Palazzo team members will greet the troops at a welcoming
reception in the resort's atrium gardens.  
A live-stream of the troops' arrival and ceremony will be available
at The Venetian Facebook, and The Palazzo Facebook pages. In
addition, New York Times bestselling author Michelle Malkin will
cover the entire event at 
her blog, while renowned journalist Alana
Goodman will provide in-depth interviews with the troops at
Commentary Magazine.  
During their holiday vacation, the wounded warriors will enjoy not
only the events of Winter in Venice, but also lavish accommodations,
tours of the Las Vegas Strip, and tickets to opening night of the
intimate Soul2Soul show starring Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, as well
as tickets to Mannheim Steamroller Christmas at The Palazzo Theater.
They will also have the opportunity to enjoy the ultimate sports fan
experience at Lagasse's Stadium, poker tournaments, gondola rides,
services at Canyon Ranch SpaClub(R), and a gourmet cookout hosted by
Omaha Steaks at Madame Tussaud's Las Vegas. 
"The holiday season gives us a chance to express our gratitude to the
men and women in the Armed Forces for their many sacrifices," said
Andy Abboud, senior vice president of government relations, Las Vegas
Sands Corp. "Our chairman Sheldon Adelson and our entire company want
nothing more this holiday than to honor and celebrate our nation's
troops and their families. This vacation is our way of saying thank
you and happy holidays."  
Omaha Steaks President Bruce Simon said: "As a fifth-generation,
family-owned company with a nearly 100 year history, we consider it a
privilege to honor these brave soldiers and their families, who have
generously sacrificed and bravely served to protect our great nation
and the freedoms we all enjoy. We are grateful this holiday season
for the opportunity to join with The Palazzo Las Vegas to offer our
thanks and gratitude to our military troops and to support the
outstanding efforts of the Armed Forces Foundation."

About The Armed Forces Foundation 
 The Armed Forces Foundation
offers vital assistance to active-duty and retired personnel,
National Guard, Reserve Components and military families as they cope
with difficult circumstances. When a service member sustains combat
injuries overseas, they and their family face a long, difficult road
to recovery. Spouses must often quit jobs to care for their partner,
children cope with parental absence, and financial situations often
deteriorate. The moment a soldier arrives at the hospital, the Armed
Forces Foundation steps in to assist the family in traveling to his
or her side and provides lodging for them to remain there. The
foundation then provides financial assistance, supplementing income
while the family waits. Through therapeutic recreational and outreach
programs, the AFF helps service members through their physical
recovery and provides relief from the mental stress of Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder. Through education and advocacy, we fight for better
care and treatment for PTSD. All along the way we provide other
opportunities as well, sponsoring military family events and
Christmas toy drives. The Armed Forces Foundation lives by the motto
"Serving those who serve," and, recognizing that families serve too,
seeks to provide a well-rounded program of assistance and support for
the military family unit.
