Salute to Service Programs
Salute to Service Game
The Cleveland Browns recognized service members of each military branch during this year's Salute to Service game versus the Cardinals. The game incorporated several tributes to local heroes to thank them for their service. The Browns also highlighted the work of the USO Ohio, a First and Ten community partner, during this game.
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 of service members in the local community.
