I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Michael Gaughan, owner of the South Point resort, for his generosity to American veterans on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
When some casinos are driving local customers off with expensive parking fees, here is a casino which shows tremendous heart, welcoming veterans (and a guest each) with a buffet, drinks and exceptional hospitality.
Shift workers would stop by and shake our hands and thank us for our service, while others handed out bottled water to mitigate the long lines.
This was a wonderful tribute to those of us who served proudly, with no expectations of gratitude. Our reward was to serve our nation — and here is a man who shows true appreciation and recognition of our service, above and beyond all expectations.
On behalf of thousands of grateful veterans, we thank Mr. Gaughan; we thank the South Point staff for their wonderful food, warm greetings and thoughtful kindness, which made this a truly remarkable event.
