At the time Veterans Stadium was built there was a controversy over the naming of the stadium. This was during the era of the Viet Nam war and ultimately Philadelphia city council chose the name Veterans Stadium to honor of the Veterans of all wars.
In 2008, the country is once again at war and on this day America honors it's Veterans.
Veterans Stadium was the Home to the Philadelphia Phillies from 1971 through 2003. The Vet was demolished in the spring of 2004. The photo below is of a Marker placed where Home Plate was once located in Veterans Stadium.
