Seattle Seahawks Military Appreciation Day

With large Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard populations, the Seattle area, in spite of being something of a liberal bastion, has a good reputation for supporting servicemembers.*

And the Seattle Seahawks, having their hottest season ever, took to the time to recognize some of the military members, with a reenlistment ceremony, presentation of Purple Hearts to wounded soldiers, and displays and announcements, as well as hosting Medal of Honor recipients SSG Ty Carter, SFC Leroy Petry, and LTC (Ret.) Bruce Crandall.

Well done, Seahawks!


*San Francisco used to. Now virtually every installation in the Bay area is gone, likely never to return.
