These veterans enjoyed a Braves game last spring as part of Safe America’s “Welcome Home, Heroes!” program. This May 28, another group will enjoy the Braves-Mets mid-day game on May 28 thanks to MillerCoors, Nova Copy and United Distributors partnership with Safe America.
Miller and Coors Beer has announced plans to partner with the Safe America Foundation gain this year, planning an event on Monday, May 28 at the Atlanta Braves – New York Mets’ Memorial Day game.
The Monday ball game – which will kick off at 1:30 pm – will salute veterans for their commitment and showcase Safe America’s corporate and NGO partners who have committed to helping improve veterans’ futures here at home.

“We’re looking to give a special salute to female veterans this year – noting the sacrifices they have made both overseas and here at home,” noted Ted Kolwicz, Program Chairman. “We’re pleased that our VETV online channel will be taping and premiering this summer more interviews noting how PTSD is still a severe concern and what steps can be taken to both recognize it and deal with it.”
