UMUC Joins Baltimore Ravens In Saluting the Military and Veterans

University of Maryland University College honored veterans and active duty military service members at the Baltimore Ravens game on Sunday, Nov. 4 through its sponsorship with the team and the National Football League’s annual Salute to Service campaign.

UMUC employees staffed a tent on Ravens Walk, outside of M&T Bank Stadium, that featured a large banner for fans to sign and thank military personnel for their service. The Ravens will be taking the banner overseas to present to troops serving abroad.

In addition to a host of activities geared toward honoring active-duty military personnel and veterans, four A-10 Warthogs of the Maryland National Guard performed a flyover at the conclusion of the national anthem prior to the game.

After the anthem and prior to kick-off, Ravens players were introduced and led onto the field by service members carrying American flags representing each branch of the service.  Musician First Class Kenny Ray Horton, a member of the U.S. Navy, sang the national anthem.
