Mets GM Sandy Alderson Pays tribute to Fellow Vietnam Vets during Mets Military Monday

On a cloudy day in Manhattan New York Mets General Manger Sandy Alderson visited the VA Hospital and helped pay tribute to those who served in the Vietnam War.

The Mets who started Military Monday in 2013 to salute U.S. servicemen and womenwith complimentary tickets, retail discounts and community outreach events.

The event on Monday featured Alderson who was able to reconnect with some fellow Vietnam Veterans, as many places are honoring those who served with it being the 50th Anniversary of the conflict.

Alderson took time to share stories with those in attendance, from his first memory of the Mets overseas, to talking baseball in general. Alderson joined the staff of the VA Hospital to give out commemorative pins, as a small thank you to those who have served.

Also in attendance to honor the Veterans were Mr Met and team broadcaster Josh Lewin
