As a small gesture of thanks for all they do for our country, all law enforcement, firefighters/emergency services, active, reserve and retired military personnel and one accompanying guest are invited to be guests of the tournament host Thunderbirds, free of charge, at the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. This is the 12th year that the Thunderbirds have extended this free invitation to this well-deserving group of heroes.

“We’re excited to bring back this very popular program to this year’s tournament.” said 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman Tom Altieri. “It’s our way of saying thanks to those who put their lives in harm’s way for us every day.”

Under the 12-year-old program, all law enforcement, firefighters/emergency services and military personnel along with and one accompanying guest will be admitted free of charge every day at the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Eligible personnel must present their official department ID or badge at any ticket booth at the main tournament entrance. Business cards and pay stubs will not be accepted as forms of ID. Tickets are limited to two per day, per each official department ID. Standard tournament spectator policies will be in enforced, including no firearms allowed.

At the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open, more than 2,350 service personnel and their family members took advantage of this offer, and since the program’s inception in 2002, an average of 2,250 people per year have benefited from this opportunity.
