STL. CARDINALS HONOR MILITARY


http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/media-views-fsm-cards-to-salute-military-on-friday-night/article_fe25783c-bfa9-579d-8b54-015f25d1d288.html

I attended this game last evening as my son was given a couple of seats in a suite.  He could not attend so his wife and my oldest grandson went in his place.  My significant other/common law wife by now…….set in great seats just beyond the left field wall, a section over just inside the foul pole.

The St. Louis Cardinals are a class act organization.   Friday night was Military Appreciation Night, with a theme of “This One’s for you”.   Military personnel and families were at the game, some of the families without their a husband, father, mother, daughter or brother, still serving in another land.

I was a bit disappointed that more families and military personnel were not introduced to the fans than there was.   I thought they could have done more in between innings, rather than having the usual game Kiss Cam and other games; but I also realize it can be difficult to arrange.   Appreciate what you get, the Cardinals didn’t have to do it at all.   But, that’s not who they are; we are, Cardinal Nation.  Thank You!

  1. WE HOPE THAT THE MILITARY DOES NOT PUT THE ST. CARDINALS IN FEMA CAMPS. YOU NEVER KNOW WHO IS GOING TO BE CLASSIFIED AS A DISSENT OF OPINION AND/OR WAY OF LIFE.
