US Military All-Stars

They're one of the biggest draws at summer-collegiate ballparks: the U.S. Military All-Stars are set for another extensive tour across the country this summer.

The 23rd annual "Red, White & Blue Tour," which sees the squad visiting 45 states and three countries via city-to-city bus tour, will begin in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania on June 6 -- appropriately enough, D-Day.

If the team is playing at a ballpark close to you, they're worth a look. The U.S. Military All-Stars wear full-camouflage uniforms with historical references representing all branches of the military and first responders. Games include a choreographed pre-game that includes "Passing the Ground Zero Flag" and "Walk of Honor" ceremonies to recognize local heroes and everyone who has ever worn a uniform.
