I feel like Veterans Day doesn't get nearly enough attention. Is it because it's not in the summer, and odds are you're not BBQing or hitting a party today?
The Mets do a great job saluting a military member during each game.
I came across this awesome IG account that gives a Mets history lesson each day. Not sure who runs @MetsRewind, but it's pretty awesome.
Mets legend Tug "Ya Gotta Believe" McGraw was a Marine, as was Hall of Famer Tom Seaver. It's also common knowledge that our GM, Sandy Alderson, was a Marine as well. I couldn't track down an official list, but many Mets put our country’s uniforms before their orange-and-blue one.
Thank you to all veterans, not just today, but every day.
Tailgate with us on Saturday September 16th at Citi Field! Kick the night off with us in the Marina Lot! The Mets take on the Reds at 7:10pm so we expect fans to start showing up around 3pm. If you can't swing that early, just get there when ya get there.
