Military Appreciation Night Sponsored by Valor Home Bowie Baysox Bowie, Maryland September 18, 2021

Maryland Gold Star Mothers and families were invited by Valor Home to the Bowie Baysox Military Appreciation Night. Prior to the game, Theresa Karlson accepted a beautiful wooden American Flag on behalf of the Chapter that was presented by Will Fisher of Valor Home and Flags of Valor.

In attendance were Stephanie White and her guest Willis Bazin, Jeanette Middleton Sudano with her family Sam, Olivia and Harrison, Yvonne and Garry Green with Garry’s Mom, Mabel Green and her good friend Ms. Shirley, as well as Theresa and Bill Karlson. We are also happy to report that during the game, Jeanette’s son, Harrison was excited to get a fly ball!

The group was treated to a beautiful night as we waited until the end of the game to see the fireworks, but before the fireworks, we were invited to the field to hear a special announcement from Valor Home – they surprised Garry and Yvonne by telling them that they will be the next Gold Star family to receive a new roof! To say that Garry and Yvonne were excited, is an understatement!

Many thanks to Will Fisher, Al and Adam Kincaid, Brian Bauer and Matt Speer for coordinating this wonderful surprise for Yvonne and Garry!
