We Salute You!

Today, on Veteran’s Day, everyone at the Dodger organization salutes those who sacrifice for others to make this country what is is today. There are so many great things going on around the nation today, including a really exciting event at Dodger Stadium where members of the military will be taking BP, hanging out on the field, meeting legends like Tommy and Newk and enjoying a great day at the stadium.

Before that, we’ll head out to the Veteran’s Hospital in Westwood with Tommy and Vin Scully to spend some time with those who are there and thank them for their service. It’s all part of a larger program we’ll be starting in 2011 to honor the military.

The Dodgers Media Network (www.dodgers.com/dmn) has a great tribute video to Dodger legend Rick Monday’s proud moment of saving the flag, while Bill Plaschke weighed in this morning with a heartfelt column as well.

And while we’re saluting the efforts of others, it’s important to note that Joe Torre will host his annual Safe at Home dinner tonight in New York to benefit the great work that his foundation does to stop domestic violence, while Ryan Theriot’s inaugural celebrity golf classic is tomorrow in Louisiana to benefit three great causes (www.ryantheriot.com).

I can’t say it any better than Enchanted just did….so, I will just add, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

A heartfelt thank you to all those serving and to all those that have served and given their devotion and lives for our country. My hope is that We The People can return the favor and make you as proud of us as we are of you.

To all the men and women that have served and are serving in the military, my most humble love and gratitude. For those that have lost their lives serving and to their family, my deepest condolences.

No free agency. Force Ned to make the first decent trade of his career, whatever that trade may be. And Ned, decent means it HELPS the Dodgers, not hurts them.
