U.S. Pavement Services will salute military veterans and their families as part of the Pledge to Hire Veterans campaign at Saturday’s Boston Red Sox-Toronto Blue Jays game at Fenway Park.
Working with local and regional veterans services officers and the Red Sox, U.S. Pavement has distributed over 300 tickets for the game to veterans as a small way to say thank you for their service.
This is the fourth consecutive year that U.S. Pavement will have hosted military veterans at Fenway. Veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan are scheduled to be in attendance Saturday and will receive an on-field tour of Fenway before the 4:05 p.m. game. U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Amber Nonnamaker will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
U.S. Pavement, which also will donate $5,000 to local veterans organizations, encourages all local businesses to consider and hire veterans whenever possible. Veterans are a highly trained but under-utilized part of the work force.
