At every home game, the Astros honor veterans and active-duty military members with Operation Military Appreciation presented by Occidental Petroleum. Each honoree receives complimentary tickets behind home plate, food and beverage. The honorees are introduced on Minute Maid Park's giant video board to a crowd ready to show its appreciation with a standing ovation.
On The Home Front presented by Occidental Petroleum
The Houston Astros invited 10 military members and their families to enjoy Big and Bright Friday Night at each Friday home game with On the Home Front presented by Occidental Petroleum. On the Home Front guests watch the Astros take batting practice from the field and then get to enjoy the game in great seats with a perfect view of postgame fireworks.
The Astros primarily partner with local organizations serving active-duty military and veterans to identify participants in the programs listed above. If you are interested in nominating yourself or someone you know for one of these programs, please fill out the Military Nomination Form.
