A big shout out to ThanksUSA’s official airline sponsor, American Airlines, who teamed up with the USO and MGM Resorts International to provide a weekend of entertainment and relaxation to some very special Wounded Warriors in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Upon arrival in Las Vegas on Thursday, service members and guests were escorted to The Mirage Hotel and Casino where they were welcomed with the “Walk of Gratitude.” ThanksUSA co-founder Kelsi Okun was on hand to cheer for our heroes and capture some photos:

ThanksUSA honors all those who have served and would like to give special recognition to the Director of Veterans Initiatives at American Airlines, Jim Palmersheim, an Army Vet who continues to serve his country through advocacy for military personnel and their families.
