Traveling memorial honoring the U.S. Armed Forces opens July 3rd
WILKES-BARRE, PA (June 27, 2019) – As a part of Hot Summer Fun, Mohegan Sun Pocono is proud to host “The Spirit of America’s Story”, a traveling memorial exhibit commemorating the U.S. Armed Forces and the fight to freedom from 1775 through today. This is the first time “The Spirit of America’s Story” has stopped in Pennsylvania, and the patriotic exhibit wall will remain in the Keystone Grand Ballroom from July 3rd – July 7th, with viewing hours from 10:00am – 8:00pm. Admission is free and guests of all ages are welcome.
The 100-foot-long exhibit uses rich illustrations and visual stories to capture and preserve the spirit, sacrifices, and vast history of the American people. Attendees will also be able to pay tribute to the men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces who have and are currently serving to protect America’s life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – both here and abroad. Guests are encouraged to participate in an informative and interactive Q&A session during their time at the exhibit.
On Tuesday, July 2nd at approximately 1:00pm, the truck transporting the exhibit will be traveling to Mohegan Sun Pocono with a motorcycle escort courtesy of local American Legion Riders. The escort will begin on Highway 315 at the Wyoming Valley-Pittston Exit 115 on the PA Turnpike and head South on PA-315 to the property.
