On Sunday, Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer saluted vets from the sky, alongside members of the U.S. Special Operations Command Parachute Team as part of the NFL’s “Salute to Service” initiative, sponsored by USAA, the Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL. The goal of the initiative is to “elevate military appreciation across the league among players, teams, and fans.” To do this USAA works with the NFL to host Salute to Service games, conduct in-stadium stunts (like the one you’ll see in the video below), and garnering appreciation from NFL fans via the hashtag #SaluteToService. To get involved, simply use the hashtag in a “thank you” message to someone you know who has served. What better day than today to do just that?
But first, check out a behind-the-scenes look at what Glazer got to experience on this practice run for the military pros’ jump into Raymond James Stadium last Sunday.
