49ers Salute to Service on Sunday

Posted by Alex Espinoza on November 9, 2012 – 12:52 PM

The San Francisco 49ers return home to host the St. Louis Rams at 1:25 p.m. PT, Sunday, November 11, at Candlestick Park. The game will be televised by FOX Sports and heard locally on KNBR 680 am, 107.7 FM The Bone and KTRB 860 am ESPN Deportes. Fans looking for tickets to Sunday’s game are encouraged to go on to NFL Ticket Exchange powered by Ticketmaster.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THIS WEEK’S 49ERS GAME

Salute to Service

  • The 49ers and USAA, the official Military Appreciation partner of the NFL, join America in celebrating our veterans by thanking the men and women who so bravely serve our country.
  • The 49ers Salute to Service celebrates our Armed Forces throughout this week’s game, and includes a Wounded Warriors presentation, a tribute to Veterans, the swearing-in of new members of the United States Army, and a stadium card stunt honoring those who have given of themselves to protect our freedom.
  • To download and share exclusive photos of Sunday’s card stunt, visit millionfansalute.com.
  • To support our military, for every point scored at all 32 Salute to Service games around the league, the NFL will donate $100 to each of its core military non-profit partners: The Pat Tillman Foundation, the USO and the Wounded Warrior Project.
  • 100 tickets to the game were donated to Operation Care & Comfort courtesy of BDA, the Merchandise Agency of the 49ers.


Wounded Warriors

  • The San Francisco 49ers are honored to welcome and commend representatives from the Wounded Warriors Project, a San Francisco 49ers Partnering Organization that honors and empowers military personnel who have sustained service-connected wounds, injuries and illnesses on or after September 11, 2001, for their bravery and service to our nation and the sacrifices they have made to protect our freedom.
  • Founded in 2003, Wounded Warrior Project seeks to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service men and women, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of those heroes.

Gameday Entertainment and Features

  • Pregame entertainment will include an F-18 flyover from VFA-86 from Naval Air Station Lemoore at the conclusion of the national anthem.
  • The national anthem will be performed by Navy Counselor, Petty Officer First Class Steven Powell, who has served in the United States Navy for 21 years. His first duty station was NAS Moffett Field and he has since been deployed to Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Powell’s passion for music has led him to become an accomplished vocalist who has performed with artists such as Montel Jordan, as well as during ESPN’s Friday Night Fights and Monday Night Football. Powell is currently the Leading Petty Officer of Navy Recruiting Station Concord in Pleasant Hill, Calif.
  • The internationally acclaimed U.S. Army Drill Team will be featured during halftime as it performs its breathtaking routines with bayonet-tipped riffles. The drill team has performed for millions of proud Americans and during major military and civic functions for more than 60 years, including for the President and during dignitary visits. They also act as goodwill ambassadors by supporting Army recruitment.

Gameday Giveaways

  • 49ers Faithful are encouraged to bring their AAA cards for chances to win free gifts during each game this season.
  • 49ers Alumni Jesse Sapolu will be signing copies of his new book, I Gave My Heart to San Francisco, in the JinkoSolar Gate directly next to the Sports Gallery Booth.
  • Following a 49ers victory, coupons for two free tacos courtesy of Jack in the Box will be available upon exit.

Second Harvest Food Bank Holiday Food and Fund Drive

Don’t forget your healthy non-perishable food items for the Second Harvest Food Bank’s Holiday Food and Fund Drive. Collection bins will be located at Gate A, Bud Light Plaza, Verizon Gate, and all other gates throughout the stadium.

  • Join SHFB’s Holiday Food and Fund Drive Co-Chair, 49ers CEO Jed York, and get in the game to help score against hunger this holiday season.
  • SHFB raises nearly half its revenues through the annual drive, so your donation will help to feed hungry families during the holidays and all year long.
  • The goal is to raise $12.4 million and 2 million pounds of food this holiday season. There are a number of ways you can help SHFB make it to the goal line by giving to the campaign. Every dollar donated provides two meals. To get involved or to learn more, visit www.SHFB.org.
