Yankees and USO team up to honor veterans and support troops
Members of the USO kicked off the event with a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem, followed by Girardi addressing the crowd to thank everyone for their efforts." I think it's important we continue to show support to our soldiers," he said.
"It's going to such a great cause, to those who are defending our freedom and our country," said Cone. "It's such a great event that grows every year, this means a lot and I look forward to being here every year."
USO volunteer Elinore Chechak commented on how it was fitting to have the event in the Great Hall at Yankee Stadium, "I love coming here and I thank the Yankees for making this space available, it's really a pleasure."
