Full week of activities set for Nov. 14-21
Tennessee Athletics is proud to announce the return of a full Salute to Service Week of activities for Nov. 14-21, following Veterans Day.
This year’s week-long celebration of Tennessee’s ultimate Volunteers includes special recognitions, ceremonies, celebrations and opportunities for veteran and military families to attend a football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and volleyball game free of charge (additional details provided below). Since the introduction of the week-long recognition in 2018, Tennessee Athletics has welcomed thousands of military and veterans from across the southeast to numerous athletics events as part of Salute to Service Week.
Tickets to the Tennessee vs. South Alabama football game on Nov. 20 will be distributed directly to 10 local and state veteran, military and first-responder organizations that Tennessee Athletics has identified as longstanding partners. Individual military/veteran requests for tickets should be directed to www.VetTix.org
The Pride of the Southland Marching Band will perform a special halftime show dedicated to Veterans. Plans for a flyover during the Vol Walk, performed by a C-17 Globemaster III captained by UT alum Major Belfanti from the 14th Airlift Squadron, based at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, are in the works, but are dependent on weather conditions and other factors.
At halftime, a contracting and re-enlistment swearing-in ceremony will take place for 75 members of local military units.
Fans interested in purchasing tickets to the Salute to Service game are encouraged to visit AllVols.com.
