Here is how the Bengals and Giants will honor our heroes on this Veterans’ Day:
The Bengals and USAA Insurance hosted 100 members of the 37th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and the 371st Sustainment Brigade of the Ohio National Guard at practice on Friday, October 12. Guests were given a gift bag, watched practiced, and then had an opportunity to interact with the team. Members of the Brigades received tickets the Bengals military appreciation game on November 11.
At the November 11 game, the Ohio National Guard will deliver the team mascot, Who Dey, to the game in a HumVee. The Adjutant General of Ohio will deliver the coin for the coin toss and preside over pre game ceremonies, including the Honor Guard and National Anthem. The Anthem will be sung by Captain Leslie Battle, and during the Anthem, National Guard members will hold a large American flag and fans will perform a card stunt.. There will be several military-themed displays in the Jungle Zone, and members of the Ohio Air and Army National Guards will be honored at halftime.
