The Spurs know how to honor our veterans

Nobody does it like Military City, U.S.A.

If you have served our country, thank you.

If you have a family member in the military, thank you for sharing. We know you sacrifice time with your loved ones for the greater good for all Americans.

The San Antonio Spurs honor our military.

They also love to surprise families. How many of these have you seen?

And how many of you have trouble keeping your eyes dry?

From the family surprises, the Military Appreciation Nights (where military personnel can acquire discounted and sometimes free tickets), and the Spurs training camp for active military hosted by USAA, there are so many ways the San Antonio Spurs honor our military.

Look no further than one of the franchises most celebrated and respected players, retired Naval Lieutenant David Robinson, to see how well the basketball team and our servicemen and servicewomen mesh together.

And of course, our revered head coach Gregg Popovich served five years of active duty in the United States Air Force and considered a job with the C.I.A. before making the move into basketball.

To all who have served, once again, thank you.

And Happy Veterans Day.
