Fort Bend County to honor veterans and new enlistees

Kyle Dawson, Skeeters Sr. Director Community Development, Evelyn Traylor, Event Coordinator and SFC Celso Pacheco (Center) join the 72nd BSTB National Guard Unit to discuss plans for the May 28 Legacy of Freedom-Saluting Our Heroes event.

Plans are underway for Fort Bend County citizens, county and city officials and civic organizations to come together in a countywide event to honor those who have given their lives for our country, our veterans as well as those who will be entering the Armed Forces in 2013.

The event, “ Legacy of Freedom-Saluting Our Heroes”, will be held in conjunction with the Skeeters home game on Tuesday, May 28 at Constellation Field in Sugar Land with pre-game ceremonies beginning at 5:45 pm.

Officials from the city, county and state will be presenting proclamations to honor the men and women of our Armed Forces.  As part of the event, the 72nd BSTB National Guard Unit and other first responders will be on hand to show off their latest equipment and technology.

Make plans to join us.  For ticket information and those wishing to sponsor a ticket for a veteran and/or new enlistee, please contact the Skeeters Box Office at (281) 240-HITS or www.sugarlandskeeters.com. The ticket price will be $8 Field Box seats (regular price $12).
