Casino Honors Veterans and Active-Duty Military

MILWAUKEE – In honor of Veterans Day on November 11, Potawatomi Bingo Casino and the Forest County Potawatomi will recognize both guests and Casino employees for their service to our country.

Casino guests who are veterans or active duty military are invited to stop by the casino’s Promotions booth 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m. on November 11 for a special “thank you” including a certificate for a free meal in The Buffet, extra entries in the casino’s Veterans Day drawing and an honorary sticker guests can wear that will enable others to recognize them as a veteran and bestow their appreciation. Military ID must be shown to receive the special appreciation items. 

In addition, the casino’s exterior light wall will display patriotic red, white and blue colors from November 7-12.

Potawatomi Bingo Casino will also honor employees who are veterans or active-duty military through a variety of recognition and appreciation efforts. Nearly 100 Casino employees have been identified as having served in the military, or are currently serving. 

“We have tremendous respect and appreciation to those who have served our country,” said Potawatomi Bingo Casino General Manager Mike Goodrich. “This is one small way we can recognize and thank our veterans and military personnel for the sacrifices they make.”
