Bucks Seeking Nominations for Military Heroes Class of 2021

Waterloo, Iowa – The Waterloo Bucks are seeking nominations for their seventh annual Military Heroes Class. This special group 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of the military and honor those who are currently serving our country, veterans who have served in the past, but are no longer active, and those who bravely fought for our country, but have since passed away.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 ceremony for the 2021 Military Heroes Class will be at Cost Cutters Field at Riverfront Stadium before a game on or around Independence Day (based on the upcoming release of the 2021 Northwoods League schedule).  Those military heroes selected (and their families) will be honored on the field, highlighted on the Bucks’ LED Video Board, and will receive four tickets to that game.

Nominations for the Military Heroes Class will begin immediately.  The first 20 submissions will be accepted into the 2021 group, as individuals are urged to enter their nominations right away.  Nominations will be taken until January 31st  OR until 20 submissions are received.

To give all past and current military the opportunity to be honored in the Military Heroes Class, we ask that those veterans included in previous classes from 2016-2020 not be nominated again.

Nomination forms can be accessed online by clicking here.  All nominations must include a photo of the Military Hero when submitting the form online.

For more information on the Military Heroes Class please contact Dan Corbin at (319) 232-0500 or by e-mail at corbin@waterloobucks.com.

The 2020 Minnesota-Iowa Region Champion Bucks play their home games at Cost Cutters Field at Riverfront Stadium which welcomed a new state of the art video board in 2016 thanks to a matching grant from the Black Hawk County Gaming Association.  Team ownership has invested nearly $400,000 in stadium improvements since the end of the 2014 season including group outing areas, painted bleachers, public Wi-Fi, sound system, kids zone inflatables, wiffle ball field, and concessions equipment.  Fans are encouraged to stay in touch with the Bucks by utilizing their website at www.waterloobucks.com or utilizing the Northwoods League Mobile App.
