PlayStation Will Present a Salute to Our Troops Event Next Week

on June 3, 2014 1:41 PM

At the Fort Riley military base in Kansas, PlayStation will be holding a Salute to Our Troops event between June 9-10 to bring a bit of E3 outside of LA in honor of those who have served and those who continue to do so.

At PlayStation, we’re incredibly thankful of the service our troops provide each and every day. As a way to both honor and entertain our service men and women (We all need a bit of R&R sometimes!)

Fort Riley has a huge gaming community — the base even has its own dedicated gaming area in their Warrior Zone recreation center.

The event schedule is as follows:

What: Hands-on with upcoming PS4 games, as well as a concert from country star Brett Eldredge. Open to the public, free to attend, and all ages welcome.

When:

    • Monday, June 9th:
      • Brett Eldredge concert – gates open at 5:00pm, show starts at 8:00pm
  • Tuesday, June 10th and Wednesday, June 11th:
    • Road to Greatness truck at The Warrior Zone
    • Open at 11:00am
    • Daily contests for PlayStation goods, including PS4 giveaways

Where: Fort Riley, Kansas

The event is free and open to the public as part of the Road to Greatness tour. You can RSVP as well as check the schedule to see if there will be any events in your area.
