The concert will feature Rose Between the Thorns, a rockabilly, country rock and blues band out of Northern Virginia. Dominion Fireworks Inc. from Petersburg, Virginia will be providing the crowd pleasing fireworks display toward the end of the event.
The Town of Quantico, incorporated in 1927, is the only town in the U.S. that is completely surrounded by a military base. Quantico Tactical takes its name from the same town where CEO David Hensley, a retired Marine Corps major started his business to service the Marine Corps base personnel with quality apparel and gear.
As a way to demonstrate support and say thank you to the armed services community, Quantico Tactical has generously pledged $4,000.00 of matching funds toward the overall cost of the fireworks display. The Town of Quantico is seeking corporations or individuals wishing to partner with the town and Quantico Tactical in funding the Salute to Our Troops event.
Each dollar donated to this effort will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Quantico Tactical up to $4,000.00.
