Doug Melvin, Ellen Melvin and family team up to support Wounded Warrior Project®
By / MLB.com
Brewers President of Baseball Operations - General Manager Doug Melvin, his wife Ellen, and their family are teaming up to support Wounded Warrior Project® this season at Miller Park.
Through a donation to Brewers Community Foundation, the Melvins will welcome a wounded service member from Wounded Warrior Project® to one Brewers game each month. The special guest will receive four field level seats to a Saturday Brewers home game and be recognized on the scoreboard at Miller Park for their service to our country.
"This is a cause that we can all get behind, and I am happy to support," said Doug Melvin. "These young men and women make enormous sacrifices for all of us and Wounded Warrior Project® helps them adjust to life back home after serving our country."
The Melvins will also sponsor a Wounded Warrior Project® road trip in July when the Brewers travel to Washington D.C. to play the Nationals. Two injured service members will accompany the team on the trip, courtesy of the Melvin family.
