Hello BVA,

     Here is a short video from  the ASTROS Baseball Game yesterday with the Military Appreciation segment.  Worked hard to get them to include the name of "BVA".  They normally don't do that in these events when they introduce the veterans.   They normally only say their name, rank, branch service, and length of time in military!
