In our country, service members often go unnoticed or unappreciated. I am so happy to hear that our hometown team, the Minnesota Twins, are recognizing service members in special ways this season. Twice a month the Twins honor service members and their families with an on-field pregame ceremony. They also offer free tickets to military members and their families throughout the season and offer discounted tickets every Monday. This effort is their commitment to Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program. Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a program pioneered by the Minnesota National Guard to connect all Minnesota service members and their families with community support, services, and resources.
How awesome to actually get to go to the game and salute our heroes. Summers are short in Minnesota, so like my family has done, enjoy a few ballgames and say hello to a service hero! God bless America!
