The Association of the United States Army is proud to announce that we will be returning to Ball Park Village in 2017 to celebrate Military Appreciation Day in partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals.
Last year, over 1900 people joined us to celebrate Military Appreciation Day. Ball Park Village served up tasty eats and Anhuesur-Busch provided some cool refreshing beverages before the game. We were joined by the USO, U.S. Army Recruiting, Twist & Bounce, St. Louis Ambush, St. Louis FC, AT&T, Howl at the Moon, Fox Live!, Selfie with a Soldier, MOAA, the National Park Service....whew...that's a lot of folks.
All service members, veterans, retirees and their families are welcome to join us!
The Soldier for Life mindset is a holistic approach to the military life cycle career of a Soldier. The U.S. Army takes care of teammates by ensuring Soldiers start strong, serve strong, and reintegrate strong so they remain Army Strong serving their communities after they leave the Army. The U.S. Army's strategic imperative of sustaining the All Volunteer Army is directly affected by how well the veterans reintegrate back into the communities. Gen. George Washington said,
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."
From being members of our local chapter to donating items for our events, we couldn't do it without our Corporate Partners. Support from companies like these are the backbone of strong financial support to our Soldiers and their families. AUSA’s Corporate Members are local businesses, large corporations, civic groups, veteran’s organizations, societies and local community groups.
This program provides Corporate Members the opportunity to demonstrate to the community that they support Soldiers and their families while strengthening their own business opportunities for as little as $150 per year.
Your membership in the AUSA is what makes events to support Soldiers, veterans, retirees and their families possible like our annual Leadership Awards Ceremony where we recognize the Soldiers of the Year from Missouri & Illinois and award scholarships to outstanding students. Our members are also the driving force behind Military Appreciation Day at Busch Stadium where we feed over 1200 Soldiers before the game.
We are THE Association of the United States Army. We are your professional organization for keeping you current on issues that affect you and your family. Membership is only $30 for 2 years or $300 to be a life member.
