Every November, the NFL honors Veteran’s Day with its “Salute to Service” campaigns that honors the military and shows appreciation for the troops in various ways throughout the stadiums and on the field.
Players wear camo gear, special decals and wear special gear on the sidelines, but there will also be a touching gesture from the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, the Chiefs will be honoring fallen soldiers from Missouri and Kansas with some incredible new warmup jackets. The jackets feature the name of a fallen troop, with an American flag and the league’s Salute to Service logo on the sleeve.
In addition to the jackets, each player was presented with a card that shared information on the life of the soldier whose name they were taking with them on the field.
