NFL's Salute to Service campaign welcomed by 171st Air Refueling Wing

Four players from the Pittsburgh Steelers: Jonathan Dwyer, James Harrison, Brett Keisel and Doug Legursky visit the 171st Air Refueling Wing, November 6. The visit, part of the "Salute to Service" campaign, is sponsored by the NFL in conjunction with USAA. The NFL is also paying tribute to the Armed Forces throughout the month of November. During the visit, the players take time to autograph one of the unit's KC-135 aircraft, Steel City Pride. The Salute to Service campaign aligns with the NFL's long history of supporting America's armed services, including a partnership of more than 45 years with the USO that includes overseas visits to troops and trips to military hospitals nationwide. During the Pittsburgh Steelers' November 12 game, the Steelers will honor a veteran from every war, and recognize a local Harrier pilot who was shot down and killed last month over Afghanistan. The Steelers will also recognize their local military community by paying tribute to the service men and women of the 171st Air Refueling Wing. The team is partnering with USAA for a stadium-wide card stunt that features a special military appreciation message during the National Anthem. Fans will be instructed to hold up the card at their seats just before the National Anthem. (National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Ann Young/released)
