The Las Vegas Raiders visit Creech Air Force Base for Salute To Service
As part of the NFL’s Salute to Service league-wide campaign, the Las Vegas Raiders visit Creech Air Force Base and have designated this upcoming Sunday’s game at Allegiant Stadium against the Indianapolis Colts to honor our veterans and active military.
According to the NFL, the Salute to Service is “collective effort to honor, empower and connect with our nation’s service members, veterans and their families,” and Allegiant Stadium will be decked out in decorations honoring the military, including stencils, banners, and goal post wraps. The Salute to Service logo will appear on game balls, and players will receive military-themed gear such as helmet decals, towels, and sideline caps.
Additionally, the Raiders are honoring Salute to Service in Southern Nevada with a number of activations. The Raiders visit Creech Air Force bringing kicker Daniel Carlson, cornerback Bryce Cosby, tight end Cole Fotheringham, and quarterback Chase Garbers on their day off this week.
Together, they join Raiders President Sandra Douglass Morgan, the Raiders staff, and the Raiderettes in speaking with the Airmen and thanking them for their service to our nation. The event was held alongside a USAA activation.
Not only will the Las Vegas Raiders visit Creech Air Force Base, the Raiders Foundation is scheduled to host base leadership from both Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases for Sunday’s game. Since the Raiders moved to Las Vegas, the Raiders Foundation has had several meetings with base leadership to discuss the needs of the military community, and the base leadership on gameday will be another opportunity for communication and the growth of this crucial partnership.
