Veterans honored this season in Baseballtown

READING, Pa. - All this season the Reading Fightin Phils will honor the men and women who served our country.

At Thursday night's home opener the team announced plans to pay tribute to veterans all season long.

They raised a flag for Chief Master Sergeant Richard Etchberger of Hamburg.

He was killed in 1968 while rescuing wounded comrades in Laos during the Vietnam war.

Etchberger was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2010.
