Jaguars accepting nominations for in-game military recognitions

Posted

The Jacksonville Jaguars are now accepting nominations for the team’s in-game military and first responder recognitions for the 2018 season. 

In-game military honors have been a tradition for the Jaguars since the team’s inception. Since 2012 alone, the Jaguars have recognized more than 150 individual veterans, military personnel and first responders with these traditional in-game honors.

In partnership with UPS and the Greater Jacksonville Area USO, The Jaguars Foundation provides more than 100 tickets per game to local military families that have a loved one on deployment. The Jaguars also provide more than 1,600 discounted tickets to military veterans and their families for every home game, and the home games regularly feature military flyovers, color guards and musical performances by military bands.

New this season, all military recognitions will be located at the all-new Camp Grunt Style, the military-inspired environment open to all fans on the north deck at TIAA Bank Field. 

The four in-game recognitions will include:

All nominations will be reviewed by a small selection committee and winners and their nominators will be notified in advance of the game. Those selected will receive tickets and parking to the event in which they will be recognized. 

Fans can visit www.jaguars.com/military to submit a veteran, active duty service personnel, veteran-owned business or first responder to be highlighted live on the video boards during one of the Jaguars’ home preseason or regular season games this fall. The application only applies to the 2018 home schedule at TIAA Bank Field.
