Tim Booth, asset services manager for FMC Technologies, spoke about the importance of honoring Houston's veterans.

"Houston has the second largest veteran population of any city in the United States, so events like this go a long way in showing that veteran population how much we care about where they've been and what they've done."
The week of events will lead up to the team's annual Salute to Service game presented by Bud Light, which is one of the Texans' most popular game themes each year. The Texans will host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Nov. 23 at Noon CT.
