Swier Law Firm kicked off the Veteran of the Game campaign with the Sioux Falls Canaries home games during their 2017 season. Each honored Hero received four (4) game tickets behind the Canaries' dugout and a limited edition t-shirt. The service member were introduced and recognized during the game between innings on the Canaries' dugout. We requested active duty and reserve service members wear their uniform for the recognition (the United States Army requires that all service members wear their dress uniform). In addition, we asked that all retired honorees wear something that visibly represents their branch, if they cannot wear their uniform.
We are very proud to announce the following Veterans of the Game awarded during the SF Canaries 2017 season! Thank you to these military members and thank you to everyone who has and is serving our nation. You can see their Veteran of the Game photo on our Facebook page.
