Buffalo Bisons vs. Toledo Mud Hens at Coca-Cola Field
Pre-game Ceremony at 4:30 PM
HONOR OUR ARMED FORCES, “SHOW YOUR SUPPORT” AND HELP THE BUFFALO & ERIE COUNTY NAVAL & MILITARY PARK
The Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park and the Buffalo Bisons have joined together to create a special event to honor the service men and women of our United States Armed Forces, and show Western New York’s commitment to the USS The Sullivans maintenance and preservation to:
- Honor the Sullivan family who lost five brothers (George, Francis, Joseph, Madison, and Albert) aged 20 to 27 onboard the USS Juneau, sunk by a Japanese submarine, on November 13, 1942.
- Keep afloat a piece of US history well deserving of its National Historic Landmark Status.
Join us Saturday, May 16 for the Bisons’ home game against the Toledo Mud Hens and celebrate Armed Forces Day with a special pre-game ceremony, commemorative events, giveaways, raffles and celebrations of our honored veterans and active duty service members all afternoon.
