-- Every Monday, Market Street Saloon
in Charleston, South Carolina, dresses up its "saloon girls" in a sexy style to help show support for American military personnel. While the bar's weekly Military Mondays help raise awareness and give 50 percent off to patrons with military IDs, the Market Street staff are not the only South Carolina residents lending their support to the troops. In fact, a recent article
from USA Today reveals that on Friday, August 9, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) jumped out of an airplane in order to show his support for American military.
USA Today explains, "The South Carolina Republican, 66, [tandem jumped] from an airplane with members of the All Veterans Parachute Team at an entertainment event in Sumter, S.C., for military families. The event is part of the 'Salute our Troops' campaign that has raised $1.5 million this summer, and $5.67 million since 2011, to support military families. Wilson [tandem jumped] with retired U.S. Army soldier Mike Elliott, who has conducted two tandem jumps with former President
George H.W. Bush, who has celebrated birthdays by jumping out of airplanes."
In a recent press statement, Market Street Saloon comments, "We are proud of our congressman, Joe Wilson, and his dedication to really show the country how to support our troops. Not only did this event bring great publicity to the South Carolina area, but is also helped many Americans remember to appreciate the service that military personnel give on a daily basis. While supporting our troops is great, we are definitely impressed with Wilson's ability to show his commitment in a wild way by jumping out of a plane--true Market Street Saloon style."
USA Today explains how that "wild" factor has been a favorite among many that aim to make a point. Specifically, the article reveals, "Skydiving is popular among many lawmakers and public officials who often use it as a daring way to show support for the military or draw attention to issues. Rep. Ralph Hall, (R-Texas), the oldest member of Congress, went skydiving last Memorial Day and proclaimed afterward: 'I want to do it again.' In July 2009, Rep. Nick Rahall, (D-W.Va.), went skydiving with the Army's Golden Knights to show his support for the state's coal industry. When he was Denver mayor in 2005, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper jumped out of a plane to film an ad in support of a tax reform measure."
Patriotism and supporting the United States remains very important to Market Street Saloon and for the entire Charleston Hospitality Group, of which the bar is a part of. As part of this ongoing effort, Sam Mustafa--founder of Charleston Hospitality Group--was recently awarded a certificate from the Office of the Secretary of Defense for serving as a Patriotic Employer.
"We truly commend those who aim to make a statement by doing something as courageous as jumping out of a plane. For those that share a similar point of view, our Military Mondays are a great opportunity to show off your wild side and support for our troops," Market Street Saloon concludes in its press statement.
In true southern style, the Market Street Saloon
in Charleston, South Carolina, is the place to go for the nightlife set that wants to party like rock stars. This bar features an incredible show, where patrons not only get to enjoy awesome drinks served up by attractive bartenders, but also delight in a performance put on by the "saloon girls." The saloon girls are noted for their exceptional southern beauty, charm and rowdiness, as they are likely to take control of the crowd every night equipped with daisy dukes and cowboy boots. If you are a local or a visitor, Market Street Saloon is a hot spot to have a VIP Party or simply enjoy one of the usual nightly specials, such as Wild N' Wet Whiskey Wednesdays.
