Carolina Panthers to honor fallen heroes during game against Kansas City Chiefs


The Carolina Panthers plan to honor the memory of those who have died in service to America when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, November 13 at Bank of America Stadium.

For the second consecutive season, Panthers players will wear initials of fallen service members on their helmets. During the game, the service members will be honored in video tribute. Their loved ones will also be welcomed onto the field between the first and second quarters to receive replica helmet with the decal, signed by their player.

All fallen heroes have a connection to the Carolinas – they were natives of the region, trained or deployed from a base in the Carolinas.

This special recognition during the Nov. 13 game is part of the Panthers’ and the NFL’s annual Salute to Service military appreciation campaign. 

The Panthers will play the chiefs at home starting at 1 p.m. Sunday.
