Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce hosts 41st annual Salute to the Military

A time of thanks and reflection for the people in our military, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber hosted the 41st annual Salute to the Military at Beau Rivage.

This was a time to pay tribute and thank our neighbors in uniform for their service to our nation and Coast communities. It was a ceremonial program along with a seated breakfast.

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker served as the keynote speaker for the event. Senator Wicker said, “It’s the first time we’ve had it in the morning, but I think it was great. Huge turnout and just a huge show of appreciation and love and thanks for the people that have stepped forward and put themselves in harms way for our freedom.”

Senator Wicker also added that the event was special because being a member of the military was generational for his family and he was a member of the Air Force.
