ANGELS If you're going to the Angels-Washington Nationals game next June 27, you may well find yourself surrounded by members of our armed forces. As a special thank you to our nation's military, Union Bank has donated 1,000 tickets to the game to local military men and women and their families.

"We are thrilled to offer these tickets to honor the members of the military in our community," said Union Bank executive vice president Mike Feldman. "We wanted to honor the brave men and women who serve our country every day with tickets they could enjoy with their families. We are looking forward to a great night."

The tickets were distributed to units at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside; March Air Reserve Base in Moreno Valley; the Coast Guard in Los Angeles and San Pedro; and Ft. Irwin in Barstow. Tickets are also being donated to local nonprofit military support groups Operation Homefront and the Wounded Warrior Project.
