Salute to Service

Showing support for active and retired members of the military is a vital part of the Texans organization. The Texans partner with several local organizations, including the USO, the Wounded Warrior Project, the Lone Star Veterans Association, Operation FINALLY HOME, and Impact a Hero, to show our appreciation for the nearly 70,000 post-9/11 veterans in the Houston area. From honoring soldiers at our Salute to Service game to changing the life of a deserving soldier by gifting him with a brand-new home, the Texans take pride in supporting the men and women who have served our country.

Salute to Service Game presented by Bud Light
Each season, the Texans host a special week leading up to the Salute to Service game, which honors and celebrates members of our military. This year, the Texans hosted more than 300 service members and their families at the game. Members of all five branches of the military held the Texas and U.S. flags on the field during pre-game ceremonies; World War II vet Clyde Combs served as the Texans’ Homefield Advantage Captain; TORO repelled into the stadium with a U.S. flag as the Cheerleaders formed “U-S-A” on the field; and “Challenger,” the free-flying American bald eagle, soared through the air to land on the field during the national anthem. At halftime, fans were treated to a special performance by the U.S. Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. 

Tees, Texans, and Troops
During Salute to Service Week, the Texans hosted Tees, Texans, and Troops at Top Golf for 100 members of the military and their families from the USO, Wounded Warrior Project, and Lone Star Veterans Association. Texans Cheerleaders, Texans Ambassadors and Lady Texans teamed up with the kids and families to hit balls and enjoy refreshments and quality time together.

Military BBQ
Also during Salute to Service Week, the Texans hosted a barbecue at NRG Stadium for 200 service members and veterans in the Verizon West Club. Guests enjoyed lunch cooked by Texans tailgate teams with food donated by H-E-B and served by the Lady Texans. After lunch, all attendees were given the rare opportunity to visit a private Texans practice where they got to meet the team.

Houston Community College Scholarships for Service
In an effort to contribute to the Houston workforce and support Houston-area veterans, Houston Community College (HCC) and the Texans partnered to create the Scholarships for Service program. In 2016, HCC awarded more than 20 scholarships, worth nearly $60,000, to veterans who were enrolled in HCC. The recipients were honored at an awards ceremony that included Texans lineman Tony Bergstrom and HCC officials. Over the course of the partnership, the Texans have donated more than $250,000 in scholarships to HCC students.

Salute to Heroes
At each Texans home game, service members and vets are recognized for their contribution to our country in the Salute to Heroes feature. Each honoree receives a commemorative gift from the Texas and recognition in front of Texans fans. In honor of these recipients, $110,000 has been donated to the USO, Wounded Warrior Project, and Lone Star Veterans Association.  To nominate an individual for the Salute to Heroes feature, please click here. Please note: we receive many nominations and we regret that it is not possible to honor each individual at a game.

During the Texans playoff game in January, the Texans and nonprofit Operation FINALLY HOME surprised U.S. Army Specialist Cliff Betcher and his family with news that they were the 2017 recipients of a new custom-built, mortgage-free home courtesy of Operation FINALLY HOME, the Texans, and building partners. Ground was broken a few weeks later and the home will be dedicated in 2017. 

Impact A Hero
The Impact a Hero organization raises funds to provide emotional and financial support for severely wounded and disabled war on terror veterans and their families. The Texans were proud to sponsor the kids’ area at the run, where children received autographs from Texans Cheerleaders. The Impact a Hero 5K has raised more than $2.5 million for veterans and their families.

TACT Teams
The Texans All Community Team (TACT) ticketing program allows players to purchase season tickets for local nonprofits, providing each group with the opportunity to attend every home game, get behind-the-scenes and on-field experiences, and meet players. Several players sponsor season-ticket packages through the program that honor groups consisting of military families and veterans, including the USO and Lone Star Veterans Association. For more information on the TACT program, please click here.

USO Tour
In 2016, Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing participated in the USO-NFL Player Tour overseas. For nearly 50 years the USO and the NFL have worked together to lift the spirits of troops through handshake tours. Cushing, along with several other NFL players, visited the servicemen and women to show appreciation for their service.
