The Cleveland Browns ‘Hats Off to Our Heroes’ program is a signature program that focuses on recognizing and honoring local heroes for their service during each home football game! To kick off the 2016 season, WAGS 4 WARRIORS, an organization to help service men and women that have been affected by their combat experience were the first to be honored in Cleveland Browns Honor Row. Veterans who are a part of this organization were honored at the Browns vs. Falcons preseason game on August 18th.
WAGS 4 WARRIORS is a program that strives to unite those who suffer from PTSD or TBI with a dog, to take away the struggle that some veterans face every day after returning home from war. WAGS 4 WARRIORS works with local rescue organizations in North east, Ohio to match a veteran with an appropriate furry companion to ensure that the veteran and dog are the perfect match! WAGS 4 WARRIORS provides all of the training, equipment and support for the dog to become the veterans service dog at no cost.
During the game, veterans who are a part of the WAGS 4 WARRIORS program were honored and recognized for their service to the United States during the game in the Browns Honor Row.
