ANAHEIM - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will commemorate Armed Forces Day at today's game against the Chicago White Sox at Angel Stadium, with Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, raising an American flag previously flown at a NATO base in North Kabul, Afghanistan.

Several military vehicles will be displayed outside Angel Stadium before the game. A pregame ceremony scheduled to begin at approximately 12:30 p.m. will include a flyover of World War II aircraft, a joint forces color guard and on-field military presentation.

Veterans will perform the national anthem and throw a ceremonial first pitch.

An area child who lost a parent in combat will serve as honorary bat boy.

Both teams will debut Major League Baseball's camouflage caps. All fans in attendance will receive an Angels camouflage cap, while supplies last.

Veterans and active duty military personnel can purchase selected tickets at the box office for a 50 percent discount with military identification or a Department of Veterans Affairs card.

Following the Angels game, a three-inning Purple Heart Baseball game will be played between wounded warrior teams representing Camp Pendleton and Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.

Armed Forces Day is annually celebrated on the third Saturday in May, coming near the end of the nine-day Armed Forces Week, which begins the second Saturday in May and ends the third Sunday in May.
