Ljd7wgnc The day after U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama Bin Laden, the Dodgers announced they will give free tickets to military members during the month of May.

Any active, reserve or retired member with a valid military ID can receive two complimentary tickets at any ticket booth on the day of the game. The tickets will be for the best available seats.

Ex-manager Tommy Lasorda, now a special advisor to Chairman Frank McCourt, wanted to salute members of the armed forces.

The Dodgers previously announced discounts of up to 75% for all military personnel. Details of the program are available here.
