The Summer means baseball here in Bowling Green, but Thursday night at the Hot Rods game will be USA Cares night.
USA cares is a national non-profit located here in Kentucky that helps veterans after they serve the United States abroad.
"I think it's a great mechanism to help keep these people that serve and protect us on their feet when they need it, to get acclimated back into regular society. It just sounded like a natural cause for us to jump, and it just sounded like a natural cause for us to hop on and help with," said Hot Rods President Brad Taylor.
USA Cares will help pay the bills when you need the help or in the case of Anthony Tubolino, it's helping him reach his dream.
They're flying him places for job interviews.
"It's going to be able to help me move on with my civilian career. I like my job right now, but my main goal that I want to achieve is to become a police officer and with them, they're making that possible for me," said Tubolino.
USA Cares board member Terry Scariot is very passionate about the cause, and wants everyone to know what veterans have done for our country.
"I would just request everyone keep them in mind and recognize while the war's winding down, and there's less individuals in harm's way in Iraq and Afghanistan, we still have a debt of gratitude to pay these veterans that have risked their life for our freedom and to protect us again from terrorism," said Scariot.
For Tubolino, he's forever thankful.
"I just really appreciate their help, without them, I wouldn't be able to get there, and I wouldn't have these opportunities," said Tubolino.
Opportunities that USA Cares is providing to thousands of veterans nationwide.
USA Cares raised more than nine million dollars, and helped more than 35,000 veterans.
Thursday night, the Hot Rods will be wearing patriotic uniforms, that will be auctioned off after the game with the proceeds going to USA Cares.
