On Sunday, May 21st USO New England teamed up with the New England Revolution soccer team for their “Salute to Heroes” event at Gillette Stadium. Local pageant title holders were in the Fan Zone greeting military families. They were able to view Red, White, and Blue Classic Cars, visit local military recruiters, and take part in activities and raffles. The 215th Army Band came and put on an awesome performance for the crowd. The First Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment presented the colors at the match, as military families unfurled the the flag on the field! The five Row of Honor seats were filled with all female soldiers. Families were also able to take part in the pre-game Rally Tunnel, half-time tug of war, and a post-game meet and greet with the Revolution players on the field. Over 1,000 complimentary tickets were given to military members and their families. We look forward to working with the New England Revolution again next year!
