    Finally, you can see a paratrooper just to the left of the scoreboard.

    We lost the game, but when you consider the bigger picture, we should all feel very blessed to live in the greatest country in the world, and give thanks that we have these brave men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedoms.

    May God keep blessing America...

    Thanks for posting the wonderful pictures! I wish you could have had one taken with you in it though :)

    You are correct, we are all blessed to be living in such a wonderful Country and owe a debt of gratitude to our service men & women and vets.

    It's good to see this kind of support for your military personnel.

    I never hear of anything like this happening in the UK. Our wounded vets are forgotten people.

    Great stuff Hoffa! It's nice to see these guys get some love. Considering the lame state our current armed forces is in, Canada has always done a pretty decent job of remembering its war vets. As the son of a WWII vet it's always great to see these guys who give so much get recognized at home. I know my dad's generation were treated like heroes upon their return; in today's jaded, self absorbed world, it sucks that too often these awesome individuals return home to nothing but indifference (and even disdain).
