With Veterans Day coming up on Monday, Nov. 11, the NFL has unveiled a small gesture that will go a long way towards showing the league’s gratitude to our military men and women.
Most of the NFL’s 32 teams, as well as NFL Network analysts, will wear camouflage-patterned ribbons in order to pay tribute to the United States military.
The NFL Communications department announced the continuation of its “Salute to Service” donation plan that began in 2011. For every point scored in a designated “Salute to Service” game, the NFL will donate $100 to each of its military non-profit partners. Those partners are the Wounded Warrior Project, the Pat Tillman Foundation, and the USO.
Phil Hecken shared a photo of the ribbon the Raiders will wear during their game against the New York Giants.
NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano also shared a photo of what on-air talent will wear.
