FOX Sports Ohio & Wendy's® Present Special Memorial Day Salute to Troops

BY foxsports • May 26, 2011

The Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers game this Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th at 7pm on FOX Sports Ohio will include special features, presented by Wendy’s®, in honor of the United States Military.

During the Reds Live pregame show at 6:30pm, cohosts Jim Day and Jeff Piecoro will interview Steve Lee of the USO Tribute Cincinnati Committee along with a member of the military.

Additionally, viewers will have the opportunity to share special messages in honor of our troops during the telecast. Fans can text their well wishes, gratitude, and shout outs to the military to 37664, which will scroll on screen during the 4th, 6th and 8th innings.

The USO Tribute Cincinnati Committee has partnered with local area Wendy’s to raise money for our troops. From May 30th through July 4th, participating Wendy’s locations in northern Kentucky, eastern Indiana, Cincinnati, Dayton and Athens, Ohio will sell Frosty™ Key Tags for $1.00 to benefit the USO Metropolitan Washington.

The Frosty Key Tags can be redeemed through September 15, 2011, and are valid for one free small Frosty per transaction per visit with any purchase. Approximately eighty cents of each key tag sold goes directly to supporting wounded warriors and their families.

The text message display and support of the USO and the Wendy’s Frosty Key Tag program is a simple way for all involved to say ‘thank you’ to the men and women who selflessly served and continue to serve our country.
