Today we celebrate our Army’s 242nd birthday. Soldiers of character, the sons and daughters from across our proud nation, serve as the cornerstone of our Army. As the world’s premier land force, they stand ready to defend this great Nation. The Army colors have 189 campaign streamers marking battles from the Revolutionary War to today’s campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Nearly 185,000 soldiers are currently deployed in 140 different countries helping to protect our great nation, our allies, and our interests. We cannot overstate how important our Army is to preserving our freedom and way of life. Our nation is eternally grateful.
From all of us at Forward March Inc.
Statement from the Press Secretary on the Army Birthday
Steve Bashore, General Manager of Buffalo Run Casino, presented Director of Leader Development, Jimmy Burgess, Forward March Inc. with a check as a way of giving back to the local veteran community for their service and sacrifice to the country.
Buffalo Run has a great history of showing appreciation for Military Veterans, both for employment and in their customer base. This year, they have partnered with Forward March Inc. in sponsoring military-esque jerseys for the Joplin Outlaws Military Appreciation Night, July 1st at Joe Becker Stadium in Joplin. After the game the jerseys, along with other items, will be auctioned off. All proceeds from that event are going to the Heartland Canines for Veterans, a non-profit organization that places service dogs with Veterans.
Forward March Inc. would like to take this opportunity to say thank you, to Steve Bashore, Jerry Venis, and Buffalo Run Casino for their support!
Joplin Outlaws Military Appreciation Night is July 1st at Joe Becker Stadium in Joplin, MO. Doors open at 5pm. First pitch is at 7pm, performed by actual service dogs… you can’t miss it!
If you or your company would also like to sponsor the event, you can contact Jimmy Burgess @ 888-723-6223 x225. All proceeds go to the Heartland Canines for Veterans (501c).
May was a big month for Team FMI – Joplin as we kicked off our partnership with the City of Joplin, MO and the Joplin Welcome Home Veterans Program. On May 15th, Joplin Mayor Michael Seibert recognized former military members and May Military Appreciation Month with a Mayoral Proclamation. Representatives from 10 Veteran organizations, active, reserve and National Guard members were also in attendance for this memorable event. The City of Joplin values it’s Veterans and is leading the charge in support of Veterans, and is great place for Veterans and their families.
Welcome to Joplin, Veterans!
