Springfield, MO - The Springfield Cardinals, Double-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, are proud to partner with Ashley Furniture HomeStore to launch the Salute to Military Program, recognizing military personnel for their service throughout the 2013 season.

The Salute to Military Program will shine the spotlight on military personnel who have demonstrated outstanding military and community service and support for other veterans.  Active and retired personnel
must be nominated for the Salute to Military Program.  One active or retired military member per game will then be selected to receive four
