Resorts World Casino New York City paid tribute to service members on Veterans Day with a special ceremony featuring two of the members of the heralded Tuskegee Airmen of World War II — Richard Braitwaite and Audley Coulthurst.

Attendees were greeted at the main entrance by a patriotic display with the seals of the five branches of the U.S. military.

Sean McCabe, an employee at Resorts World and an area resident, was also honored for his service, most recently in Afghanistan. At the end of the ceremony, attendees were given American flags.

For the next two weeks, area veterans will be honored with their photos shown on the television screens on the casino floor.

Welcome to the discussion.
