SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- USAA, a leading insurance provider to the military community, is now the “Official Military Appreciation Sponsor” for the Seattle Seahawks. In 2011, USAA became the first-ever Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL.
Throughout the 2012 season, USAA and the Seahawks will ramp up their military appreciation efforts in the greater Seattle area. Plans include hosting families of deployed servicemen and women at each home game and providing exclusive team access to members of the military community. These efforts will culminate at the November 11 game versus the New York Jets during the NFL-wide Salute to Service initiative taking place November 8-19.
“This sponsorship focuses on USAA and the Seahawks combining our efforts to honor and thank our military heroes,” said USAA executive director of marketing Don Clark. “We’re excited about Seahawks fans joining us throughout the season to salute current and former military members and their families.”
“The Seahawks are proud to continue our support of veterans and military members,” said Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin. “In partnership with USAA, we are able to expand our outreach to military men and women stationed throughout the Puget Sound region.”
