Mar 06, 2008, 00:00 ET from Las Vegas Sands Corp.

    LAS VEGAS, March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sheldon G. Adelson, Las
 Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:   LVS) chairman and chief executive officer, was
 presented with the distinguished Patriot Award at the 4th Annual Armed
 Forces Foundation Congressional Gala in Washington, DC last night. For his
 outstanding support of the armed forces community, Mr. Adelson was heralded
 as a patriotic American whose generous contributions to the military and
 their families go above and beyond the call of duty.
 
     "It is so important to support our troops who are fighting courageously
 for all of us and assisting their families in a time of need is a great way
 for me and my family to show our appreciation," stated Mr. Adelson.
 
     "Mr. Adelson's prominence as a philanthropist coupled with his
 dedication and commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community,
 positions him to be a vital partner in serving our military troops and
 families," said Patricia Driscoll, President of the Armed Forces
 Foundation.
 
     "Operation Oasis" was singled out as an example of how Mr. Adelson has
 helped. On August 5, 2007, The Venetian, a subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands
 Corp., held a Military Appreciation Day. The free event offered an evening
 of entertainment and relaxation for the over 400 military families in
 attendance from nearby Nellis Air Force base. A number of different
 activities were available during the event, including arcade games,
 raffles, a NASA-provided authentic space suit, and several stations for
 children to experiment with air-powered finger and balloon rockets. In
 between the activities, guests were able to enjoy hamburgers, pizza and
 soda while enjoying live music provided by Nevada Congressman Jon Porter
 and his band.
 
     The Armed Forces Foundation Gala was attended by members of Congress,
 members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Department of Defense officials and
 200 wounded troops from Walter Reed Army Hospital and Bethesda National
 Naval Medical Center. The event was hosted by Congressman Chet Edwards
 (Chairman Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations
 Subcommittee), Congressman Norman Dicks (Vice-Chairman, Subcommittee on
 Defense Appropriations), Congressman David Hobson (Subcommittee on Defense
 Appropriations), Congressman Jim Moran (Subcommittee on Defense
 Appropriations) and Congressman C.W. Bill Young (Ranking Member,
 Subcommittee on Defense Appropriations).
