Salute to Service
The Cleveland Browns have an unwavering commitment to supporting active military and veterans throughout the year. Through the Browns and the NFL Salute to Service campaign for military appreciation, we strive to reach all branches of the military through the USO of Northern Ohio, a First and Ten community partner.

BROWNS HONOR THOSE WHO SERVE DURING SALUTE TO SERVICE GAME

The Browns will also welcome and highlight the USO of Northern Ohio, a First and Ten community partner of the team.

HATS OFF TO OUR HEROES HONOR ROW
Did you know the Browns honor military members during every home game through the Hats Off to Our Heroes Honor Row Program? The Hats Off to Our Heroes Honor Row Program was created following the 9/11 tragedy to support and salute the accomplishment and services of those from the local community.
USO OF NORTHERN OHIO
We partner with the USO of Northern Ohio for various unique opportunities throughout the year. Learn more about the USO here.
BROWNS SALUTE TO SERVICE RIBBON
The Browns proudly partner with the NFL for Salute to Service to extend appreciation to those who served and are currently serving our country. Learn more about the NFL initiative here.
The Salute to service campaign aligns with an NFL tradition of supporting America's armed services and is centered around a 45-year partnership with the USO, which hosts trips to military bases and hospitals nationwide as well as overseas visits to connect players and troops. All-Pro Joe Thomas (2010) and former Browns RB Eric Metcalf (2013), inducted into the Cleveland Browns Legends in 2008, have participated in the week-long NFL-USO Tours, where they interacted with military personnel on bases overseas.
Thank you to all the men and women who have served or are currently serving our country, we salute you.
