If you're a current or former member of the armed forces living in Atlanta, and if you want to see the Hawks live, we have good news for you: On Wednesday night, you'll be able to cheer on Jeff Teague, Al Horford, Kyle Korver and the rest of the Hawks for free.

According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Hawks are giving away up to two free tickets to Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. All military members must do is bring their military ID to the arena box office to pick up their tickets. The game tips off at 8 p.m. local time.

The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports that all five branches of the military will also be honored during the game, and Hawks players will be paired with military veterans during the introduction of the team's starting lineup.

Atlanta is a hub of military activity, as the city is one of the bases of operation for the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, which screens and processes applicants to the armed forces.
