November 11 is Veteran's Day, which falls on a Wednesday. Like Breast Cancer Awareness in October, the league plans on doing something special for Veteran's Day, designating home games as special Veterans Recognition Games throughout the month. The NFL will offer its Game Pass HD service at USO Centers in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Germany, Italy, Korea and Japan free of charge for members of the military, who will be able to watch every NFL game live and online in its entirety.
The Bengals will host over 50 military members, representing all service branches, at their November 8 game. They will take part in a flag unfurling during the National Anthem, followed by an Air Force flyover. There will be an on-field check presentation by Kroger to Operation Home Front. The JungleZone area will feature an interactive Marines and Operation Home Front display. Tributes will run throughout the game, including messages to the team from deployed soldiers.
