In honor of Veteran’s Day (and Remembrance Day in Canada) the Thrashers will hold Military Appreciation Night on Thursday, November 11. Military personnel will provide act as the color guard during the national anthem and will also participate in many of the in-game promotions, including acting as the game starter and riding the Zamboni between periods.
On top of those elements the Thrashers have distributed close to 1,000 tickets to the military serving at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Robbins Air force Base, Fort Benning, and to military support organizations Vet Tix and Operation Homefront. Thrashers season ticket holders in the first three rows of the lower bowl have also donated their tickets for this special night to the US Armed Forces, allowing them to be as close to the on-ice action as possible.
As always, military personnel can also purchase tickets through the Thrashers military discount program which is in place all season long.
Make sure you come out on Thursday to show your support for those who have sacrificed so much in service to their country and the world. Whether it’s by a shake of the hand, a pat on the back, or the buying of a beer, please thank a veteran Thursday.
