Connecticut BBB is looking for local military heroes

Connecticut Better Business Bureau is soliciting nominations for nine local military heroes for recognition, at the BBB sponsored Military Appreciation Night, August 21, 2015 at the CT Tigers’ Dodd Stadium in Norwich.

The evening will start off with a dedication ceremony to honor the military heroes before the game. Each one will be introduced to the baseball fans, receive an award on the field and be featured in a special commemorative baseball card deck featuring the “Military All-Stars” and detailing their careers in the military.

Military Appreciation Night is sponsored by BBB Military Line, which provides free services, consumer education and other resources for military families, to assist them during and after deployment. One of the military heroes recognized last year acknowledged the value of BBB Military Line, explaining that one of the biggest challenges is finding resources specific to military families.

BBB welcomes nominees from all branches of the military. You can use our online form to submit your military hero nominee, and tell us why you think they qualify.

Since 2004, BBB Military Line has provided free resources to our military communities in the areas of financial literacy and consumer protection through the efforts of Better Business Bureaus across the country. Learn more about our Military Line services at

Join us August 27th to help us honor and show our appreciation to members of the military and their families. We have posted details about the BBB Military Appreciation Night game on our website.
