Past and present military personnel will receive free admission, and a variety of festivities will surround the Buccaneers’ 5 p.m. game against New Mexico Military Academy.

A graduate of Snook High School, Texas A&M University, and South Texas College of Law, Schubert serves on the House Committee on County Affairs and the House Committee on Corrections.
