Veterans Day Commemoration

Honoring All Who Served
Presented by the Missouri Athletic Club and Rotary Club of St. Louis

The MAC and the Rotary Club of St. Louis is proud to host the annual Veteran's Day Commemoration event in November. This event is a tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country and a celebration of their sacrifices.

Your support will help us continue to honor and support our veterans and pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country.
