The Milwaukee Bucks are offering free tickets to Wisconsin Military Veterans through Milwaukee County’s Purple Heart Pass Program. The Bucks are generously donating tickets to the game against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday, February 20th or their game against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, February 22nd. Any veteran who has the Purple Heart Pass can get up to four tickets to one of the games.

“It’s encouraging to see so many people and organizations support the Purple Heart Pass program. I’m especially thankful to the Bucks and Herb Kohl for their generous donation,” County Executive Chris Abele said.

“We are proud to support our veterans and their families in this way. It’s through partnerships like the Purple Heart Pass Program that we gladly recognize service and sacrifice. As we work together, Milwaukee County, the Bucks and out veterans community are a winning team,” said John F. Steinmiller, Bucks Executive Vice President – Business Operations.

The Purple Heart Pass Program is a first of-its-kind initiative that was started in 2013 by County Executive Abele and the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Office (MCVSO). Pass holders get free admission into a number of private and public venues in Milwaukee County and across the state, including the Harley Davidson Museum, Discovery World and the Milwaukee County Zoo. The value of the pass is more than $200.

Any veteran in Wisconsin who has received a Purple Heart decoration is eligible for the pass.
