Cowboys salute Hood Soldiers, Families

Cowboys salute Hood Soldiers, Families

In its 2018 Salute to Service week, the Dallas Cowboys supported troops through a variety of activities designed to impact different demographics within the military Family – veterans, active duty, spouses and children.

While the Salute to Service is a year-long campaign, the week leading up to Veterans Day is the culmination of everything they worked on throughout the year.

The week kicked off with Cowboys cornerback (#31) Byron Jones and offensive tackle (#75) Cameron Fleming virtually visiting four Killeen Independent School District middle schools that serve Fort Hood – Audie Murphy Middle School, Charles E. Patterson Middle School, Palo Alto Middle School and Rancier Middle School.

The four schools have been participating in the National Football League’s Character Playbook program, a digital learning experience created by the NFL and United Way, which teaches students through social emotional learning.

“It’s really just trying to teach students skills around communication, healthy relationships and kind of analyzing the influences around them,” explained Rob Roberts, a field marketer with Character Playbook. “If we can provide an additional resource that’s positive, interesting and connects some of these bigger ideas around character … that’s a big win for everybody.”
