“The Dayton Region is known for its support of our local service men and women, and Military Appreciation Night is one more way for us to thank them for their commitment and sacrifice,” said Jeff Hoagland, president and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition.


Up to 3,000 tickets will be donated to Airmen and their families as well as other Wright-Patt military personnel through the base. Tickets also will be donated to personnel at the Springfield Air National Guard Base and local veterans. The concert will feature a military vocalist singing the National Anthem.
