Broncos Honor Veterans on Twitter

Posted Nov 11, 2013

A number of Broncos players have taken to Twitter on Veterans Day to voice their appreciation for the men and women who have served our country.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- As the Broncos celebrate Veterans Day and honor those who have served our country, a number of players have taken to Twitter to show their appreciation for the men and women who have sacrificed for the nation.

This Sunday, the Broncos will host their official NFL Salute to Service game against Kansas City, presented by USAA and OtterBox.

For every point scored during the NFL’s 32 designated Salute to Service games, the league will donate $100 to each of its three core, military non-profit partners – the Pat Tillman Foundation, USO, and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) – for a total of $300 per point. Last year, the first year of the campaign, the NFL donated nearly $800,000 as a result of the Salute to Service campaign.

Tamme also paid recognition and gave thanks to Homes for Our Troops, an organization dedicated to building specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans, and to some of the veterans that Tamme has worked with through the organization.

Guard Ben Garland, who serves as a 1st lieutenant with the 140th Wing of the Colorado Air National Guard and is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, also voiced his appreciation.

Wide receiver Eric Decker's organization Deckers Dogs — which supports the rescue, care and training of a service dog for military veterans returning home with disabilities — noted that there are over 80 military veterans on its wait for dogs.

Ultimately, on a day of recognition for those who have given so much to preserve the freedoms of this country, the Broncos offered a Mile High Salute to all veterans who have served.
