As the home of the national pastime in the Nation's Capital, the Washington Nationals are proud to work with the large community of military bases, installations and hospitals that serve as permanent or temporary homes to military service members and their families living in the Washington, D.C. region.
Nats on Base
Through the Nats on Base initiative, the Nationals aim to provide year-round experiences that contribute to the quality of life for service members and their families in the Washington D.C. region, reaching them where they live and work - as well as in-Park. The team works with regional and base leadership to develop programming and identify outreach opportunities at local installations.

Salute to Service
The Nationals offer premium seating in the Delta Sky360 Club for select military groups and their families during every home game. At the end of the third inning, honorees are recognized on the NatsHD scoreboard and receive a standing ovation from fans.
Tickets are allocated through military hospitals and support organizations and are not available for individual distribution.
PenFed Military Section
In 2018, the Nationals & PenFed Credit Union announced the creation of a dedicated military appreciation section in Right Field at Nationals Park. For all regular season home games, the Nationals and PenFed have made a select number of tickets available to military members for free.
The Nationals and GovX.com have a special ticket offer to reward all active-duty, reserve, veteran, and retired military personnel. Click here for more information!
Patriotic Series presented by SAIC
The Patriotic Series celebrates America and the national pastime at Nationals Park. These four games feature on-field programming, pregame ceremonies and patriotic uniforms to honor service members and their families. The dates of the 2019 Patriotic Series games will be announced soon!
Military Branch Days
The Nationals dedicate a special game to honor and celebrate each of the five branches of the military. At each of these games, representatives from the branch will participate in the pregame ceremony and the Salute to Service. The dates of the 2019 Military Branch Days will be announced soon!
Supporting Military Families
In partnership with the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore, the Nationals provide free tickets to military families. Every Sunday home game of the season, military families can enjoy a Nationals game together and their kids get to go at the front of the line for Kids Run the Bases after the game. The Nationals assist with USO Metro's Children's Program, giving military kids an opportunity to make new friends while enjoying a game at Nationals Park. The Nationals and USO Metro also host Date Night at the Ballpark, giving active duty service members and their significant others the opportunity to socialize with fellow military couples.
Nationals players embrace opportunities to show their personal gratitude to our nation's heroes. Throughout the season, players visit with wounded soldiers, veterans and their families at hospitals and at the ballpark. These visits frequently lead to deeper relationships between players and veterans.
