With Veterans Day on Monday, Nov. 11, the Green Bay Packers are making it a goal to honor veterans in their upcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles, reports packers.com.

Fans who attend Sunday’s game will receive a card with their seat, and during the national anthem, fans will be prompted to hold up their card, turning Lambeau Field into a “camouflage ring” that will say, “Packers salute military.” The last card stunt at Lambeau looked like this:

At halftime, the All Veterans Parachute Team will parachute onto the field. This parachute team consists of active or former military service members.

In addition to these activities, the players will have a helmet-decal that represents a branch of the military, wear newly designed gloves, use camouflage-branded towels, and all sideline apparel will have the NFL shield camo-ribbon decal.

Other festivities include a pre-game food drive for the 11th season of Touchdowns for Charity, and fans will have the chance to send a holiday card to a service member for the Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

If possible, come out, support the team, enjoy the festivities, and show appreciation for those who have sacrificed themselves for our freedom.
