Metropolitan area.

Military Branch Days delivered by UPS
The Nationals dedicate one game a year to each of the five branches of the military. The team works closely with military partners to highlight the individuals and ideals that are unique to each branch.
Supporting Military Families
In partnership with the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore, the Nationals provide tickets to military families. For every Sunday game of the season, families can use free tickets to enjoy a game together or let children connect with peers to help make new friends. The group is first in line for Kids Run the Bases after the game. The Nationals and USO-Metro also work together to host âDate Night at the Ballpark,â giving active duty service members and their significant others the opportunity to socialize with fellow military couples.
Nationals players have embraced opportunities to show their personal support for our nation's heroes.
Throughout the season, players visit with wounded veterans and their families at hospitals and at the ballpark. These visits frequently transition into deeper relationships between players and veterans.
Discounted Game Tickets
Military service members receive deeply discounted Nationals tickets available exclusively to them and their families. Tickets can be purchased through MWR and ITT offices at area bases and the Pentagon or online here. Most ticket levels also include a food and beverage credit to reduce the total cost of the outing.
