Nashville, TN – Vanderbilt University opened their stadium, November 11th, 2017 to give active duty soldiers and their families the opportunity to experience college football as part of the school’s Veterans Day Salute to Service.
Among them were nearly 50 soldiers from 101st Airborne Division Artillery who were invited to carry out and unfurl a replica of the U.S. Flag during the pre-game ceremony honoring the nation. The large replica flag was the shape of the continental United States of America.
The Commodore Marching Band fanned out across the field after the National Anthem, and the soldiers lined up at the end of the stadium to form a tunnel and cheer the Vanderbilt football players as they ran onto the field.
