AmeriCU’s Salute to the Troops Tribute Concert celebrated its tenth year as part of FMWR’s Mountainfest. The event, which was free and open to the public, was held on August 31.

The annual concert is held in thanks and support of the U.S. Army 10th Mountain Division, their families, and the Fort Drum community for their valiant service to our country. This year’s event featured multi-platinum hit makers Justin Moore and special guest Lauren Alaina, two of country music’s brightest stars.

“It has been an honor to put on this show for the past 10 years, and we are very grateful to FMWR for the opportunity to host this special concert as our way of showing our appreciation for our soldiers,” said Ron Belle, President and CEO of AmeriCU. “This year’s concert would not be possible without our sponsors and the generous contributions they made to not only the event, but to the Armed Forces and Fort Drum community as well.

AmeriCU would like to thank the following sponsors for their support: FMWR, Carthage Area Hospital, Fort Drum Mountain Community Homes, Martin’s Point, the USO, Waite Toyota, Kinney Drugs, CUNA Mutual Group, Waite Motorsports, Suttmeier Law Firm, PLLC, Ox Industries, Wahl Media, Lamar Advertising, Community Broadcasters, and NBC Watertown.
