NFL HONORS VETERANS, ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS AND FAMILIES WITH SALUTE TO SERVICE

Each year, the NFL and its 32 teams come together to honor and support members of the military as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service. The league’s year-round military appreciation efforts culminate in November with NFL Salute to Service games and other special events honoring veterans, active duty service members and their families.

The NFL works with its core military nonprofit partners to show gratitude for all those who have served our country. The NFL, along with its partners, is proud to support the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO and Wounded Warrior Project, to fund programs and provide resources that positively impact veterans and active duty military members and their families. Since 2011, more than $17 million has been raised through Salute to Service to support the league’s military nonprofit partners.

New this year, for every use of #SalutetoService on Twitter, the NFL will donate $5 to its military nonprofit partners, up to a total of $5 million.

New Salute to Service PSAs will debut this week in social media and during the Bills-Jets Thursday Night Football game, available exclusively on NFL Network. The spot features Seattle Seahawks WR DOUG BALDWIN, Philadelphia Eagles S MALCOLM JENKINS, Philadelphia Eagles DE CHRIS LONG and Tennessee Titans TE DELANIE WALKER discussing their personal ties to the military and expressing gratitude for our nation’s service members.
