When the Sacramento Blue Star Moms walked onto the field for the River Cats game, two of those presenting the flag have CDCR connections.

Mandy Johnson, Emergency Services Coordinator with the Office of Correctional Safety, is an active member of the organization and volunteers to serve on the board as the recording secretary. Also carrying the flag was retired Folsom State Prison Lt. Vivienne Yamamoto.

The game, held in early May, was dedicated to the armed forces. Blue Star Moms is an organization that supports mothers of active-duty military service members.
