Salute to Service Game Nov. 17

Posted Nov 7, 2013

The Broncos Nov. 17 game with the Chiefs has been designated as a Salute to Service game.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – As Veteran’s Day is quickly approaching, the NFL is launching its annual Salute to Service campaign that honors veterans and active duty members of the military.

The NFL designates 32 games, a home game for each team, as Salute to Service games and donates $100 to each of its three core, military non-profit partners. Those partners are the Wounded Warrior Project, the USO and the Pat Tillman Foundation. Last season the NFL donated nearly $800,000 through the Salute to Service campaign.

The Broncos’ matchup at San Diego on Sunday is a designated Salute for Service game as is the Broncos’ home game with the Chiefs the following week.

Salute to Service games will feature special helmet decals, camouflage ribbon footballs and pylons, camouflage goal post wraps and camouflage equipment such as towels, gloves and hats.

The Broncos will partner with USAA and Otterbox for the Salute to Service game and will have a pregame reception for 200 military guests in addition to having 22 soldiers line the player introduction tunnel. The Broncos will also honor a Military Family of the Game and at half time all of the branches of the military including the Wounded Warriors and the Colorado National Guard will be represented on the field.

The Military Caravan tour will visit Fort Carson Army Base to recognize the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade and the 52nd Engineer Battalion for their efforts with the recent natural disasters.

Game-worn merchandise and football will be auctioned at www.nfl.com/auction and special camouflage merchandise will be available for purchase at www.NFLShop.com. All of the net proceeds will be donated to the league’s three core military nonprofit partners.
