Operation Soldier Update: Military Appreciation Night at Minor League Ballgame

Our buddy John has some more news from Operation Soldier, the official charity of Brainster's Blog.

Operation Soldier and the Fresno Grizzlies, the AAA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, are pleased to announce military appreciation night, Saturday May 20th.

The Fresno Grizzlies will take to the diamond against the Iowa Cubs, the AAA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. First pitch is 7:05pm, at Grizzlies Stadium, Downtown Fresno, CA.

All military personnel current and past, with their military ID can attend the game, free of charge. Simply present your military ID at the gate.

For reserve ticket information, please visit the Fresno Grizzlies Website. Grizzlies tickets available here.

As part of the evenings events, military personnel from WWII to the current war theater in Iraq and Afghanistan, will be honored and recognized prior to the game. Fireworks will follow the game.

The Fresno Grizzlies will be wearing camouflage baseball hats during the game. Those same hats worn by the players will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to Operation Soldier to help with their Patriot Down Foundation and the Brotherhood of The Badge Project.

Please show your support for America’s bravest, the soldiers of our Armed Forces and come out and enjoy a great game, salute the troops, and enjoy a great fireworks show.

Stop by and say hello to Operation Soldier, as we will have a booth in the concourse area, near the concession stands.

In addition, three members of Operation Soldier have returned from a trip to Iraq:

Without a doubt the mission was a success. The trip allowed Operation Soldier to coordinate and address the ever changing needs of the types of police gear that the upstart Iraqi police will need over the next few years. It also allowed Operation Soldier to coordinate and establish channels of communication within the United States Armed Forces that is in charge of administering the gear that is delivered to them to issue to the Iraqi Police Forces.

The mission was such a success, Operation Soldier is putting the final details on yet another trip to take place during the summer of 2006.

Day one in Iraq we had the privilege of being briefed on the role of the Army's 101st Airborne in Salah ad Din province. This is the province that includes Tikrit and is known as the Sunni Triangle. At one point a dangerous place indeed to quickly improving under the direction of Col. Steele and Major Elliott and Major Nage.

If you are in the Fresno area, please plan to attend the Grizzlies' game to show your support for the troops. If you're not in the Fresno area, stop by Operation Soldier and consider making a contribution.

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
