Per UCLABruins.com, “UCLA Football will kick off a week-long Veterans Day salute to all current and former members of the military by wearing a special U.S. flag-inspired stars and stripes logo helmet, as well as a camouflage base layer under the team’s white road jerseys.”

The following Saturday, UCLA Football will host their 19th Military Appreciation Day when the Bruins return to the Rose Bowl for their final home game against Washington State. Active U.S. Armed Forces members showing military identification will receive a bench ticket free of charge.

There will also be several veterans recognized during the game and at halftime there will be a performance by country music artist Annie Bosko.

The UCLA Football team, once again per UCLABruins.com, “will honor its long-standing relationship with the U.S. Navy Seals by wearing a special helmet, along with a ‘Dark Ops’ base layer under its alternate ‘City’ uniform.”
