Honoring our Veterans......

This week at our home football game, we would like to express our gratitude and thanks to all our Veterans in our Thunder Family. We realize that it is not yet the official Veterans Day, but we think it is valuable to recognize you at any time. All Veterans will be admitted FREE to our game this week. Just inform our ticket takers at the gate that you are a Veteran, and you will be admitted free of charge. Come out and join us!

Check out this opportunity (shown below)!
