Salute to the Miltary: The Texans will offer their annual "Salute to the Military" on Sunday when the 49ers visit Reliant Stadium in Week 7.

Weather permitting, members of the Golden Knights U.S. Army Parachute Team will descend into Reliant Stadium from a Black Hawk helicopter before the game. That same Black Hawk helicopter will do a fly-over of the stadium after the national anthem, which will be performed by a U.S. Army Staff Sergeant.

Also before the game, there will be a special performance of "God Bless the USA" by 2008 "America's Got Talent" winner Neal E. Boyd. The Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon will perform at halftime.

The game will be broadcast on the American Forces Network, which is available in 175 countries and territories worldwide.

"We owe so much to the military," Texans owner Bob McNair said. "It's important that we make a special effort to say thank you."


epic game in Texans franchise history, under ideal conditions with a sense of duty mixed in some serious goal attainment. Thoughts?

It's a good thing you love beer, bro. This is the same condition, in which
the Texans have ALWAYS laid an egg. It happened most recently on
opening day. The COUNTRY is looking for the Texans to step up.
With the spotlight squarely on them, will the Texans play like their
backs are against the wall? If they do, there are VERY few teams
that can beat them.

I'm pretty sure they do this during commercial breaks but at the game they've been introducing military personnel. I know the guy they're introducing this week. I'm pumped for the flyover!
