Tennessee National Guard J9 Military and Family Readiness

Tennessee National GuardNashville, TN – Any given Sunday you’ll find the Nashville Sounds in camouflage for Military Sunday. It’s their tribute to the impact veterans and service members have made on our country.

The Nashville Sounds hosted a Veteran and Surviving Military Game on Sunday, May 18. The Sounds honored Gold Star families before the game on the field. Amber Diaz's husband, Army Cpl. Isaac Diaz, was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2004. Her son, Aaron Diaz, was only three years old when his father passed. Aaron threw out the first pitch of the game in honor of his father.
