Bataan hosted the event put on by the city of Jacksonville, which along with its surrounding communities has a long tradition of supporting Sailors and Marines. The game honors veterans, active and reserve service members, and military families. America's away team, the Navy and Marine Corps are reliable, flexible, and ready to respond worldwide on, above and below the sea as well ashore.
