Browns to honor serviceman and servicewomen vs. Cardinals

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Browns will highlight their year-round platform of local and national military appreciation on Sunday by recognizing military personnel, veterans and their families throughout the game against the Arizona Cardinals as part of the NFL's Salute to Service initiative.

Cleveland will salute and host serviceman and servicewomen from each military branch during the contest by showing various in-stadium elements and tributes to these local heroes.

HM1 Reggie Burton will serve as the Browns First and Ten Coin Toss Captain. Burton serves with both the Navy and Marines.

More than 30 active members of the Ohio National Guard will also be on the field during pregame to hold the American Flag.

In addition, Game-used items will be collected following Salute to Service games and auctioned on NFL Auction, with 100 percent of net proceeds donated to the league's three core military non-profit partners: the Pat Tillman Foundation, USO and the Wounded Warrior Project.
