Saluting service is more than flags

Long supported by the branches of the United States military, the National Football League has appeared to be highly patriotic. But like the camouflage attire worn by many this past weekend during the league’s Salute to Service, it can be deceptive. The 32 teams in the NFL have expressed their gratitude for the sacrifices made by service members in the form of special events, attire and pregame ceremonies. Spectators at sports venues tend to be a highly patriotic lot. Especially football, baseball and NASCAR. There is something All-American about honoring those whose service is given to protect your freedoms. “The entire NFL family is excited to honor, empower and connect with the great men and women who serve our country in the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility. “This month we reflect on the sacrifices of our heroes and increase our focus to ensure more service members, veterans and their families find the assistance they need, when they need it.” It is an honorable gesture that is not done nearly enough.
