This past weekend, ADS Inc. partnered with the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia (USO HRCV) at ODU’s Military Appreciation Day as part of the Tickets for Troops program. This program was started by ODU in January 2015 as way of providing complimentary tickets to ODU men’s and women’s basketball games to military members and their families. The program has since grown to include ODU football, soccer and wrestling matches and baseball games.
During the first timeout of the Military Appreciation Day festivities, ADS honored the USO HRCV for their service and dedication to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces by presenting them with a game ball and a donation. The Monarchs went on to win the game against UTEP with a score of 31-21. For game highlights click over to the ODU Sports webpage HERE.

“What we do for our customers far exceeds just conducting business with them,” said Jason Wallace, ADS, Inc. CEO and ODU alumnus. “When we have an opportunity to give back and really show, not just talk, about how much we care about our customers, we definitely want to be a part of that. It’s who we are as a company and we have the best customer in the world: the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces.”
This is ADS’ second straight year participating in the Tickets for Troops program as it is in keeping with the company’s mission of providing support to the men and women of the military. So far, ADS has helped ODU distribute more than 400 tickets to military members through the Tickets for Troops program.
