In Recognition of the 10th Salute to the Troops Tribute Concert
Since 2011, AmeriCU Credit Union has been honored to present the Salute to the Troops Tribute Concert at FMWR’s Mountainfest. This day-long event is in recognition and thanks to the soldiers of the United States Army 10th Mountain Division for their valiant service and support to our country, and the tribute concert provides a time for honor, recognition, celebration, and the chance to hear some of the best artists and acts country music has to offer.
The 10th Mountain Division is a light infantry stationed on Fort Drum, and since 2001 has been the most deployed unit of the US military. In 2012, after being deployed for more than 10 years, the soldiers returned to Fort Drum. AmeriCU members in the Fort Drum community wanted to do something special to welcome them home, so they worked with credit union officials, the Fort Drum community, and countless sponsors eager to support the soldiers, to create the Salute to the Troops Tribute Concert.
