Soldiers’ Angels Exhibit Documents Military Heroes and Homefront Patriots

SAN ANTONIO, March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Troop support powerhouse Soldiers' Angels is celebrating the grand opening of its first permanent, Angel-managed facility in support of America's service members, wounded, veterans, and their families with what is expected to be the largest exhibit on the war on terrorism since 2003, as seen through the eyes of America's heroes and those who support them.

"Salute to Heroes and Angels" is an exhibit spotlighting America's military men and women who continue to serve in wartime, and the homefront patriots who help ensure they are loved and supported. Framed by 9-foot canvas murals, the installation includes interactive video screens, photos, letters from the troops, stories of fallen heroes, highlights of the dozens of Soldiers' Angels teams and projects, plaques and certificates documenting the organization's impact, and opportunities for visitors to record their own stories on video, join Soldiers' Angels, or request support for a service member or veteran.

Housed in the new Soldiers' Angels permanent facility across the freeway from Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio, "Salute to Heroes and Angels" is the first of many events to be hosted in the organization's 3100 square feet of multipurpose space. Co-located with the Soldiers' Angels warehouse and shipping center run by veterans, the space will be used for exhibitions, meetings, concerts, book signings and a developing music therapy program with "Voices of a Grateful Nation."

"Salute to Heroes and Angels" is the centerpiece of a weekend of celebration for nonprofit Soldiers' Angels in San Antonio, including a black tie reception on Friday evening, a barbecue for the wounded and their families at Brooke Army Medical Center Fisher House on Saturday afternoon, and a party at the new shipping facility Saturday night. Throughout the weekend, guests, donors and visitors will have the opportunity to tour the Heroes and Angels exhibit and participate in packing activities at the shipping facility (call 626-529-5114 for more information).
