JETS Salute to Service Weekend
JANESVILLE, WI - The Janesville Jets have finalized details for their second annual Salute to Service weekend, next Friday and Saturday, November 10th and 11th versus Springfield Jr. Blues. All veterans and active duty military are welcome to attend each night free of charge, plus one guest.

"I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to recognize those who have served, and give back to local veterans groups," said Kevin Meegan, director of community outreach.

I want to personally thank our community partners, Vets Roll, Housing 4 Our Vets, and the National Guard for making this possible."
Vets Roll and Housing 4 Our Vets will each benefit from the weekend's jersey auction and bartending tips.
"We are honored to be part of the Salute to Service weekend," said Brad Winchester, account executive at M3. "All of us have family, friends, and co-workers who have served and we deeply appreciate everything they've done."
