The Heinz Ahlmeyer Soccer Game
Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 11a.m. | Alumni Soccer Field 

Donate Now!

Current and former service men and women will be recognized and honored for their service at the Heinz Ahlmeyer Game on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015, which will occur around a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) men's soccer contest between the State University of New York at New Paltz and SUNY Potsdam on New Paltz's Alumni Field. This is in conjunction with the 50th reunion of the New Paltz 1965 men's soccer team's NCAA regional championship. On that team was Lt. Heinz Ahlmeyer, who was killed in action in Vietnam on May 10, 1967.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 12-17, with all admissions proceeds from the event going to the Wounded Warrior Project. Those who wish to donate additional money to the Wounded Warrior Project can do so through this site.

The day will feature numerous activities, which are split up into four different sections: the static military and law enforcement display from 11a.m.-12:45p.m., the pregame ceremonies from 12:45-1p.m., the soccer game from 1-2:45p.m. and a halftime ceremony from 1:45-2p.m. that will include the recognition of the 1965 men's soccer team as well as a K-9 demonstration on the field by the Ulster County Sheriff's Office.
