NFL Salute to Service
November 11th, 2014 by John Nichols
supporting our Armed Forces is an important tradition for America and Bullseye Event Group is honored to highlight the NFL’s events and efforts that support our men and women in the military through the Salute to Service campaign.
NFL teams and their fans not only pause to recognize the sacrifices being made every day on our behalf, but participate in the Salute to Service campaign, which raises funds to benefit three of the military’s largest nonprofit partners: The USO, the Pat Tillman Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project. For every point scored during one of the designated “32 Salute to Service” games throughout November, USAA in partnership with the NFL, is donating $100 to each nonprofit partner.
Indianapolis Colts Salute to Service Sunday, November 16
You can reserve your seat to see the Indianapolis Colts salute our armed forces when they face the New England Patriots at Lucas Oil Stadium, Sunday November 16; view the full schedule for the 32 Salute to Service games at NFL.com and give us a call at 888-900-6564 for tickets to any Salute to Service game.
While at Lucas Oil Stadium, be sure to check out the “Chair of Honor,” located on the loge level in the southeast corner of the stadium near section 423. Recently dedicated by the Indianapolis Colts in partnership with Rolling Thunder® Indiana and Lucas Oil Stadium, the chair honors American Heroes who are still listed as Prisoner of War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA), and serves as a symbol for service, sacrifice and in recognition of the 82,000 service members who are still unaccounted for nationwide.
“All Americans should honor and respect our military who defend our freedom. Those who serve, and their families, make many sacrifices. Some pay the ultimate price.”
–Larry C. Hall, Colts Vice President of Ticket Operations and Guest Services
