Salute to Service

The Chiefs will host its annual Salute to Service game as part of Monday Night Football. Every year, the NFL and the NFL Players Association come together in honor of Veterans Day to celebrate and recognize members of the military. Since 2011, nearly $10 million has been raised through Salute to Service to support the league's military appreciation non-profit partners, USO, Pat Tillman Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project. In honor of the men and women who serve our country, the NFL will donate $1,000 for every point scored during the NFL's 32 Salute to Service games to the partners.

Chiefs players will be wearing special Salute to Service warm-ups during the game with military unit patches across Chiefs Kingdom. Fans attending will be treated to the sight of military vehicle displays at each corner of Arrowhead Stadium provided by the Kansas National Guard. The game ball will be presented by the Para Commandos Parachute Team during pre-game. In-game recognitions will be provided by the 35th Infantry Division (Kansas National Guard) from Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, and from 2nd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division (Fort Riley) deployed to Zagan, Poland. During the second quarter, a pair of Gold Star children will receive scholarship complements of Missouri Western State University. Fans should be prepared to expect other Salute to Service acknowledgements throughout the game.
