Military, Public Safety honored guests at Saturday doubleheader vs. Morehead State

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- All members of the U.S. military, both active and retired from all branches of services, plus those who work in Public Safety fields -- and their families -- are the invited guests for Tennessee Tech's doubleheader against Morehead State Saturday night in Eblen Center. In addition to being recognized, the invitation features free admission to the games.

Tech's doubleheader against Morehead State has grown in importance as both Golden Eagle teams are seeking crucial victories in their quest to reach the OVC Tournament. It's the perfect night to call on the military to help back Tech.

It's being called Military Appreciation Night and Public Safety Appreciation Night, in recognition of the men and women who give the gift of Freedom to all Americans and keep us safe every day. Tech invites all military personnel, both active and retired, as well as persons working in law enforcement, emergency and first responder fields, to be guests at the game along with their immediate family members. The offer is available by showing proper identification, and tickets can be obtained either in advance or at the game.

The women's game tips off at 5:30 p.m. with the men's game to follow at 7:30 p.m.

As part of the night's activities, three military families will be recognized from the Wounded Warriors Project. The three families have been selected to attend the OVC Tournament in Nashville as Tech's guests, with funds provided through a collection that will take place by the Tennessee Tech Student-Athlete Advisory Committee during Saturday's games.
