The National Park Service is among many federal agencies that strive to honor the service of current and former military personnel and their families. In honor of Veteran’s Day, Gateway Arch National Park, along with the Gateway Arch Park Foundation, will be hold a commemorative event honoring the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. military veterans.
“Salute to Veterans” will take place on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 1-2 p.m. The program will feature a performance by the Missouri Brass Quintet from the 399th Army Band based at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. The musicians will play both patriotic and traditional repertoire.
The concert will take place outdoors at Luther Ely Smith Square, located between the Old Courthouse and the Arch west entrance plaza. Admission to “Salute to Veterans” is free and open to the public.
Another way the Park Service honors veterans and military personnel is with the Annual Military Pass. The pass provides free entrance to national parks and other federal recreation areas for all current U.S. military members and their dependents, U.S. military veterans, and Gold Star Families.
