We salute our troops and their families and thank them for protecting our freedom every day. Join us in honoring 300 of our courageous and dedicated military service members and their families on Saturday, July 7th at Fair Saint Louis on the newly-restored Gateway Arch grounds.
Special Shirts & Troop Ceremony
You can spot the troops and their families, who will be wearing special 2018 Salute to the Troops t-shirts, provided by Alliance Technologies. Following the 30-minute ceremony at 5:30 PM on the Fair Saint Louis Enterprise Rent-A-Car Stage, fair goers and service members will mingle for personal greetings and expressions of gratitude—creating many memorable experiences!
Thanks to Brigadier General (ret.) David Irwin and his wife, Karen, the Salute to the Troops is an annual event that celebrates our armed forces. This year, service members from the Missouri National Guard, Illinois National Guard, Navy Reserves, US Coast Guard and Scott Air Force Base will be honored.
In addition to the ceremony honoring them for their service, the Fair Saint Louis Foundation will host these troops and their families to a “Four Star” experience with a dedicated VIP area for them to enjoy the day’s activities, including a catered dinner, beverages, family friendly activities, special view of the national entertainment on the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Stage, and fabulous fireworks. A Fair Saint Louis app is available for download. (Apple | Android)
