The Denver Broncos continued their long history of honoring veterans and active-duty members of the military with their annual Salute to Service game Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The game was presented by USAA.
Leading up to the game that honored hundreds of military guests, the Broncos visited with active service men and women around the Denver area. Here are some of the activities that took place:
1. Broncos visit Fort Carson on USAA Broncos Caravan
Broncos players and staff, alumni and cheerleaders went to Fort Carson, just outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado to visit with local military men and women from various branches of the Army, including Special Forces and the 71st EOD Company.
2. Wives of coaches, players and staff host military BBQ and open practice
3. Reserved chairs in honor of POW and military members MIA
4. On-field recognition
On gameday, the Broncos recognized all branches of the military throughout the game.
Military men and women were introduced alongside the starting Denver defense as they came out of the tunnel individually. Along with a flyover during the national anthem, the Broncos had a ceremony at half time in recognition.
