Browns welcome servicemen and servicewomen at practice on Veterans Day
As part of the annual Salute to Service campaign, the Cleveland Browns will welcome 75 military guests representing all five branches and the USO of Northern Ohio during Tuesday’s practice on Veterans Day. The group will attend the beginning of practice, followed by a tour of the team’s headquarters in Berea. At the conclusion of practice, coaches and players will interact with the military individuals and show their appreciation for their service, commitment and sacrifice.
Cleveland will hold its Salute to Service game when the team hosts the Houston Texans on Sunday, Nov. 16. Military representatives will be recognized throughout the game, including one representative, identified through the Wounded Warrior Project, who will lead the team out of the tunnel during pregame. In celebration of the Browns First and Ten movement, a volunteer who is committed to remembering his son and others that lost their lived defending our country by placing American Flags throughout Ohio will also be honored as the game’s coin toss captain.
