    ARLINGTON, Texas - In commemoration of Veteran's Day, the Cowboys this past Sunday proudly saluted active and veteran military members from all five branches of the service: Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Air Force.

    Game day elements highlighting the military included plaza displays representing each branch of service with Apache Helicopters, an Abrams Tank, a Navy Simulator, Marine Humvees, Air Force EOD Trucks and Coast Guard Boats. Members of the U.S. Coast Guard Station Houston also were scheduled to perform a fly over of Cowboys Stadium in a MH-65C Dolphin Helicopter prior to a presentation of flags by a combined Armed Service color guard.

    Country music recording artist Neal McCoy - an avid supporter of the USO - performed the National Anthem accompanied by U.S. Navy personnel presenting a 20-yard field flag. During halftime, McCoy acted as Master of Ceremonies to a unique halftime performance that included a muster of more than 250 servicemen, women and families of deployed soldiers on-field, while the U.S. Army Band from Fort Sill, Oklahoma performed the anthems of the five military branches and a medley of patriotic music. A card stunt, sponsored by USAA, concluded halftime with a message of "Thank You" to both active and veteran military personnel.
