The Steelers take part in the NFL’s Salute to Service annually, honoring the men and women of the Armed Forces as a part of Veterans Day observance.
The salute will be highlighted by honoring veterans from different wars, including World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Desert Shield, and the War on Terror, during a pregame ceremony as a way of saying thank you to those who have given so much.
When the Steelers stand alongside the veterans during the National Anthem, there will be another one joining them. One of their own. Steelers tackle Alejandro Villanueva is a former Army Ranger who served three tours of duty in Afghanistan and those who play with him have the utmost respect for what he has done.
