Steelers Salute to Service with Franco Harris

The Steelers will have their Salute to Service game this Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

As we celebrate Veteran’s Day on Friday and veterans and active duty service members during the Steelers game against the Cowboys on Sunday Steelers legend and Hall of Famer Franco Harris celebrated with some local military service members this week.

Harris visited the IAP Air Reserve Station in Pittsburgh in partnership with the Built Ford Tough Toughest Tailgate to play quarterback toss, sign autographs and have lunch with more than 300 service members.

The Steelers will take on the Cowboys in a must-win game for Pittsburgh. They’re coming off a three-game losing streak and hope to turn it around for the second half of the season. Franco Harris predicted a Steelers victory of 30-21 over Dallas.

They’ll certainly be celebrating their own veteran on the team, left tackle Alejandro Villanueva. The Still Curtain would like to thank Villanueva and all service men and women past and present for their service and sacrifice.

I am the proud daughter of two veterans. My parents met while in the Navy. My father went on to serve 23 years in the Navy, reaching the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer.

I have a profound respect for those who put on the uniforms and serve our country as well as their families who sacrifice time with their loved ones.

I’m proud to be a Steelers fan and a fan of our veterans! Happy Veterans Day Steeler Nation!

Here we go Steelers! Here we go!
