First Bank has partnered with the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight (GSLHF) and the St. Louis Blues for “First Bank’s Tribute to the Greatest Generation.” GSLHF honors St. Louis area veterans’ service to our country by providing an all-inclusive trip to Washington, DC to visit the memorials built in their honor.
Through April 2018, we will pay tribute to a different veteran each month. The veteran will be introduced to the fans in attendance at the Blues game and an emotional tribute video will be broadcast on the Jumbotron.
Our goal is to not only honor these veterans but to raise awareness of the Honor Flight program.
First Bank will also make a donation to GSLHF each time the Blues score first and every time the team wins for the 2017-2018 season.
Tonight we are fortunate to honor at the game World War II veteran First Lieutenant Warren Nelson in First Bank’s Tribute to the Greatest Generation.
He was relieved to return home. “You only had so much luck,” he said, “and I figured I used mine up.”
