Throughout the season, the Seattle Mariners recognize some of the brave men and women of the United States Military (active, reserve, veteran or retired) at each Friday and Sunday home game as part of their Salute to Those Who Serve program. On June 11 Michelle Bregel from our King County Veterans Program – Seattle office was recognized by the Seattle Mariners for her military service and continued service to the veterans of King County.
