Ads to Offer Veterans Free Tix Saturday
Milwaukee, WI— The Admirals are pleased to announce that for their 13th consecutive season they will welcome all veterans and active military personnel with a ticket for themselves and immediate family members to their home game this Saturday, November 11 at 6 pm against the Rockford IceHogs, courtesy of USO Wisconsin and United Steel Workers Local 209.
"This is always a special night for us to have these veterans and active military members enjoy one of our games," said Greenberg. "These men and women and their families have sacrificed so much and this is a very small token of our thanks to them for all they have done."

The Admirals will be honoring World War II Veteran Bob Birmingham, who volunteered for the Army Air Corps after turning 18. A B-24 nose gunner and bombardier, Birmingham bailed out of his stricken aircraft on his 5th mission after heroically helping to guide his plane and crew over the Baltic Sea to Sweden to escape Nazi held territory. Birmingham will be honored as the Hometown Hero during the second period.
For the second consecutive season, Chief Warrant Officer Ken Fabis of the 484th Army Band will perform the National Anthem at the game. Chief Fabis has 24 years of military service including 11 active duty and 12 in the reserves.
In addition, all veterans and active military personnel will receive 15% in the Arena Team Shop.
