Padres Going Camouflage to Salute Troops

5/2/2011 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The San Diego Padres are tipping their caps to the Navy SEALS who gunned down Osama bin Laden by busting out their camouflage jerseys tonight ... TMZ has learned.

Locker room sources tell us Padres players decided last night they wanted to honor the military by sporting the unis -- which they normally wear only for Sunday home games.

San Diego is home for many U.S. troops, including Navy SEALS ... and the USS Carl Vinson -- the aircraft carrier that buried bin Laden at sea.

We're told the Padres will also observe a moment of silence before tonight's game at PETCO Park to remember the victims of 9/11.

UPDATE: The Padres announced all active, retired, and veteran military personnel can get two free tickets to tonight's game. You can hear the cheers already ... "USA! USA!!"

I think it's pretty cool, and I've always supported our troops. For those of you who have been slamming them, just remember, they are there fighting for YOUR freedom and the right for you to say such horrible things against them.

First off, these particular uniforms are modeled after the Marine Corps desert digital cammies. Only Navy personnel serving with a Marine Corps unit wear these. It has nothing to do with the Seals.

2nd.. the Padres chenge their "Military uniform" every year. this year is the Marine Corp.. last year was Air Force I believe.

And most importantly.. **** everyone thst says we are a blood thirsty country. If it was you mother fuvking family killed in a terrorist attack you would want retribution as well. You dont like it GET THE **** OUT... no one is forcing you to live here!!
