The Waterloo Bucks are seeking nominations for their fourth annual Military Heroes Baseball card set. The card set will represent each branch of the military and honor those who are currently serving our country, veterans who have served in the past but are no longer active, and those who bravely fought for our country, but have since passed away.

The card set will be given away to the first 500 fans that enter Cost Cutters Field at Riverfront Stadium for our Independence Day celebration game. Those military heroes selected to appear in the card set and their families will be honored on the field prior to the game, and will receive complimentary tickets to that game.

Nominations for the Military Heroes Card Set will begin immediately on Friday, November 10th. The first 20 submissions will make it into the 2018 card set, so we urge people to turn in their nominations right away. Nominations will be taken until April 15th, OR until 20 submissions are received.

To give all past and current military the opportunity to be honored in the Military Heroes Card Set, we ask that those veterans included in the previous sets from 2015-2017 not be nominated.

Nomination forms can be accessed by visiting the Waterloo offices during normal business hours, or online at  Nominations can be submitted online by clicking here, or mailed directly to the Bucks offices. A PDF version of the nomination form can be downloaded by clicking here. Nominations must include a photo of the Military Hero along with your completed nomination form.
