WWII heroes will be visible behind home plate as cutouts during the game on August 23 as the Padres and USAA honor the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II. The cutouts are mostly local WWII veterans - men and women from every branch of service. Their pictures were provided to by Honor Flight San Diego, a nonprofit who takes the most senior veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials built for their service and sacrifice.
