CareSource's Veteran Salute program highlights veterans' stories during multiple Dayton Dragons baseball games throughout the season. Veterans who are chosen are recognized with an in-game video and provided with VIP treatment when they attend the Dragons game.

"CareSource is proud to continue our third year of the Veteran Salute program to honor local veterans across the region and bring their stories of service to a wider Dayton audience," said Ramsey Sulayman, Director of Veteran Programs at CareSource.

Since 2019, CareSource and the Dayton Dragons have honored nearly 20 local veterans and their families with a special experience at the ballpark. This program is an extension of CareSource's commitment to serve veterans and their families through innovative programs and partnerships to support their health and well-being.

"Thank you for making the Veteran celebration for me so special," said U.S. Navy veteran John Teevan. "I appreciate all the hard work and dedication CareSource devoted to my special day. I think veterans deserve recognition for this country and you at CareSource did an excellent job of doing it. My family and I will share this memory always."
