Auto Show hosts Military Tribute Day January 27

In honor of the dedicated service of U.S. troops, the Washington Auto Show is proud to present Military Tribute Day on Tuesday, January 27. With deep appreciation for their courage and commitment, the Auto Show is offering free tickets to all active duty military and veterans who present a valid military ID or retired ID, VA ID or DD214 and photo ID.

–The auto industry has been a longtime supporter of our military,” said Auto Show chairman Kevin Reilly. –We look forward to celebrating the contributions of our courageous servicemen and women with this tribute.”

The Auto Show will also showcase special services for active duty military and veterans by the American Red Cross in the National Capital region and the Yellow Ribbon Fund. The American Red Cross will have a display featuring volunteers and one of its disaster response vehicles. Also in attendance will be volunteer members of the Rebel Legion, 501st Legion and Mandalorian Mercs, a Star Wars costume club, who will portray characters from Star Wars.

The day will culminate with a performance by the 257th Army Band, the band of the Nationês capital. This band boasts a proud lineage going back to the legendary Corcoran Cadets of 1883, the DC militia that inspired John Philip Sousa to compose his march of the same name. Today, the ensemble provides musical support for the Washington, DC, National Guard.
