Chargers Salute to Service This Week

This weekend is the Chargers’ Salute to Service game, part of an effort across the NFL to honor those who have served in the military.

Activities for the week kick off on Tuesday, as center Nick Hardwick, tight end Ladarius Green, safety Darrell Stuckey and the Charger Girls visit the Amphibious Assault School Battalion at Camp Pendleton.

As part of game-day festivities, the Ex-Navy SEALS Parachute Team will parachute into the stadium followed by a special performance by the 3rd Marine Air Wing Band from MCAS Miramar.

Airmen First Class Michelle Doolittle of the USAF will perform the national anthem, with a special military flyover. Honorary Captain General Kevin Iiams-USMC will participate in the coin toss that features a specifically designed coin by USAA.

The Chargers will also show a video of their trip to Camp Pendleton at halftime.

The Bolts play the Oakland Raiders at 1 p.m. Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium.

The league has been promoting its Salute to Service campaign since 2011, donating more than $2.35 million to its three military non-profit partners. Every team in the league has a game dedicated to the campaign this month.
