Wounded warriors get ‘high roller’ treatment — PHOTOS

MGM Resorts International honored more than 70 wounded warriors on Friday.

Veterans who suffered disabilities from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were center stage as hundreds of employees lined a hallway at The Mirage to salute their arrival for a weekend of “high roller” treatment.

American Airlines provided a charter flight from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to Las Vegas for the “Salute to the Troops” weekend, while MGM Resorts International and its properties are providing accommodations, meals, entertainment, and other amenities.

This is the fifth year the organizations have partnered to host the event.
