Bengals to honor Military during halftime of Steelers game

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

In affiliation with the National Football League's "Salute to Service" campaign, the Cincinnati Bengals, with support from the Ohio National Guard, will celebrate the Bengals' military appreciation game this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Several events during the game will recognize the partnership between the Bengals and the Ohio National Guard. Prior to the game, team mascot Who Dey will deliver the game ball, riding onto the field in an Ohio Army National Guard Humvee driven by two Soldiers from the 216th Engineer Battalion, headquartered in Woodlawn.

More than 40 members of the Ohio Army National Guard will unfurl an oversized American flag over the field prior to the national anthem, while a senior leader from the National Guard will officiate at the 50-yard-line.

Purple Heart recipient Master Sgt. Doug Reed and Silver Star Medal nominee Sgt. 1st Class Ty Henery will be recognized during the pregame and will participate in the coin toss. The two Soldiers deployed in 2010 to Afghanistan, where Reed was critically wounded and Henery is credited with saving his life.

Halftime activities will include recognition of Soldiers from the 1-174th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, Woodlawn, who recently returned from a one-year deployment to Iraq, as well as new Soldiers from the Cincinnati-area Recruit Sustainment Program.
