(Las Vegas, NV)  —  More than fifty soldiers wounded while serving their country are getting special recognition in Las Vegas.

The wounded warriors received a round of applause yesterday, as they went through the “Walk of Gratitude” at the Mirage hotel.

MGM Resorts, along with American Airlines and the USO, teamed up to fly the soldiers to Sin City.

They will spend the weekend at MGM hotels with all expenses paid.  The soldiers will also take part in a series of events as part of the weekend-long “Salute to the Troops.”
