To All Military Personnel in Second Life:

The town of Steelhead will be hosting a Salute to the Troops Day on Saturday, November 17.

This event will include parades, military reviews, military history presentations, remembrance ceremonies, and a military ball.

The schedule of events is below.

We are looking for infantry units and personnel and any other military personnel to participate in the traditional marching parade and review early in the afternoon.

We are also looking for cavalry, dragoons, hussars, and other mounted personnel to participate in a parade of equestrian units and review, later that afternoon.

In addition, we plan to host small military displays or campsites from all eras at various sites in the sim. Single soldiers or small groups of unit representatives will be welcome to showcase their affiliations all or part of the day.
