In honor of Veteran’s Day, the Phoenix Suns payed tribute to military veterans and active duty personnel during Military Appreciation Night on Monday night whe the team hosted the Denver Nuggets at US Airways Center.

The special evening served as a launch to a season-long Suns’ Military Appreciation initiative which will offer discounted tickets to military personnel for any Suns home game, while supplies last.

In a special salute to those who have served, Suns ticket holders seated courtside (in the first row) donated their tickets to Monday’s game to uniformed members of our military.

“It is important that we honor the men and women of our United States military for their service and commitment to our country,” said Suns President, Jason Rowley. “It is ultimately their sacrifice and dedication to our freedom that offers us the opportunity to enjoy Suns basketball here at US Airways Center.”

Monday’s celebration highlighted active duty military personnel and veterans, including participation in the national anthem and Suns player introductions, inclusion in a number of in-game activities and contests, and recognition during various military tributes. Military personnel and veterans will also received a 20% discount in the Suns Team Shop throughout the game.

Here are the season ticket holders who so generously donated their courtside seats to our service men and women Monday.
