NFL honors Veterans Day

The National Football League and the NFL Players Association will continue their long history of honoring veterans and active duty members of the military with its annual Salute to Service campaign.




Players will wear newly designed on-field apparel including hats, sweatshirts, gloves and captains patches, and will use camouflage Gatorade towels on the sidelines.
