All Military members and veterans are invited to come Sunday, June 29th, to The Watkins Glen International Track for A Military and Veterans Appreciation event hosted by The Odessa American Legion, American Red Cross and Watkins Glen International. They’ve gotten support from numerous community and Veteran organizations to make this an event you won’t want to miss! This event is being held in conjunction with Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen.
Each military member or Veteran and 1 adult family member (Children 19 and under are free) will receive complimentary entry to the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen race.

The US Army Golden Knights will also be making an appearance following their jump to start the race. We offer a complimentary family style picnic lunch while supplies last. Use your entry tickets to try for one of the many door prizes. There will be plenty of games and activities for the kids. Check out the car corral full of military vehicles. Representatives from local community organizations such as the VA, Keuka College, Catholic Charities and many more will have booths set up to provide information and assistance specifically geared toward military members.
