Dodgers Honor Fallen Military Heroes on the Eve of Memorial Day



The stadium might be empty, but the Dodgers won’t let an opportunity to honor military heroes pass them by. The team is well-known for treating veterans and military families very well, and the night before Memorial Day is certainly no exception. 

A flyover of the stadium on Sunday night revealed that the Dodgers had a special light display set up to honor those heroes. The stadium was glowing a very patriotic red, white, and blue for about thirty minutes on Sunday evening.

The Dodgers partnered with the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) to create the light display in honor of the fallen. TAPS aims to provide comfort and care to families of fallen military members by creating a peer support network and connections to grief resources.
