Blue Raider football player and former Marine Steven Rhodes carried the U.S. flag while leading his teammates and coaches onto the field before the game as part of the 32nd annual Salute to Armed Services.
MTSU’s “Red, White and Blue Weekend,” two days before the nation honors its former service members and active-duty personnel on Veterans Day, rolled out the red carpet for hundreds who served or continue to serve their country.
At halftime, the nearly 340-member Band of Blue performed official military songs as each of the branches of military went across Jones Field. American Idol top-10 finalist Kristy Lee Cook sang “God Bless America.”
