The Lake Elsinore Storm are proud to announce their Military Card Set Giveaway in honor of local military heroes past and present. The promotion will coincide with Armed Forces Weekend, which will be held July 12-14, and the card set will be given to the first 1,500 guests in attendance on Saturday, July 12.

Fans can nominate a military member (active duty, retired/veteran, or deceased) to be considered for the card set. The final determination of who will be featured on each card will be chosen by an independent panel of military volunteers.

Those who are selected will receive a complimentary ticket to the game and will be brought onto the field for a pre-game ceremony where they will be publicly recognized while receiving their card.

Submissions must include a short biography of your hero, a brief statement as to why they should be featured and a photo of them in uniform. Please include any awards they have received (if applicable), where they served and if they were a part of any major conflicts or battles. Submissions must be received no later than June 16.

As part of the weekend’s festivities, the Storm will host a seminar on Sunday, July 13 prior to the game in the Diamond Club with the help of Veterans Advocacy Associates and the Temecula Veterans Center.

The seminar will talk about life after service and the resources veterans can utilize to aid in the transition back to civilian life. Veterans will be able to get information on how to access their benefits and find out how to leverage their skills in the business world.

The weekend will also feature the installation of a stadium seat honoring prisoners of war and those missing in action, courteously provided by Hussey Seating Company.

Hussey's POW/MIA Chair of Honor will remain perpetually unoccupied in honor of the over 91,000 military service personnel who are or were prisoners of war or have been declared missing in action. A family-owned company founded in 1835, Hussey Seating Company is a world leader in developing and manufacturing seating solutions for the sports, entertainment and educational markets.

Visit for the nomination form and email a completed version to Nominations will also be collected in the front office during normal business hours.

For more information, call the Storm front office at (951) 245-4487.
