Prior to tipoff, Air Force Staff Sgt. Joshua Ramos from the 433rd Airlift Wing at JBSA-Lackland will sing the national anthem. Soldiers from the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research will hold a court-sized American flag, stretched across the floor during the anthem as members from each military branch present the colors. A special enlistment ceremony will take place during halftime as recruits from all branches are sworn in to the United States Armed Forces.
On Thursday, March 12, USAA’s Lil’ MVPs Camp will give 20 preselected military members from local installations, and 40 of their children, the chance to take the court at the AT&T Center. Military kids will run practice drills and receive one-on-one coaching led by Spurs assistant coaches before meeting with a Spurs player and taking a tour of the arena.
