San Diego Carrier Classic – USS Carl Vincent
President Obama is on the Guest List along with High Ranking Military Officers, San Diego Dignitaries and other supporters of the Military. This is a special event honoring the the most important men and women in our country- our armed forces.
There are a limited number of tickets being sold and benefits from the event will help support charities like the wounded warrior project and the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. The game is to be televised on ESPN at 4:15pm PST and should be a proud day regardless of the outcome because San Diego is deep routed with military families.
