Veteran and Military Events for 2021
Register now for 8th Annual Mission Armed Forces Game
Friday, October 1st
Mission Viejo High School
Register today for the 8th annual Mission Armed Forces game this fall at Mission Viejo High School. Mission Football is honoring the brave men and women who served in the armed forces at the Mission Armed Forces (MAF) Game on Friday, October 1.
Selected veterans will enjoy reserved seating and will be honored by the varsity team during the game. Varsity players are paired with veterans whose names will be etched on the back of their jerseys. MAF is open to everyone who served -- or is currently serving -- in the United States Military (including family of deceased veterans, fallen heroes and Gold Star families).
Since each varsity player is paired with a veteran, the number of veteran honorees selected each year is limited to the number of players on the team. Therefore, to give others an opportunity to participate, only veterans new to MAF should register.
For more information, contact 949-470-3061 or RCS@cityofmissionviejo.org.
