NFL Goes Even More Jingoistic—If That’s Possible

Email Print

Apparently NFL executives weren’t satisfied with the current level of Pentagon propaganda. Now they have an “official month” each season:

The National Football League will continue its long history of honoring veterans and active duty members of the military with its new annual “Salute to Service” campaign that will occur each November.

The “Salute to Service” campaign is designed to unify and elevate the extensive military appreciation work of the NFL and its clubs. Throughout November, teams will designate home games as special military appreciation games. During these games, teams will display “Salute to Service” banners on their sidelines, in addition to hosting ceremonies to honor the service and sacrifice of our nation’s troops.
