Did you happen to catch the news yesterday about Dodger Stadium? No, not renovation news, but rather a very special act that caught the attention of the eyes above.

First seen by Desmond Shaw, a news and traffic reporter for CBS News LA, spotted a very patriotic message at Dodger Stadium on Sunday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have partnered with TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) to honor veterans for Memorial Day.

Red, white, and blue LED lights can be seen overhead and CBS News LA’s Shaw got some pretty decent pictures of the display. Each beam of light represents a fallen hero. An amazing show of respect by the Dodgers.

The lights were on Sunday night for about an hour from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm. There is no word if the display will be on again tonight, but it would not surprise me if Dodger officials give the go-ahead to do it.

The TAPS program, according to their site, provides comfort, care, and resources to all those grieving the death of a military loved one. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24/7 through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.

If you are or know someone who can use their support, the TAPS 24/7 National Military Survivor Helpline is always available toll-free with loving support and resources at 800-959-TAPS (8277).
