A major part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Mission is to Honor the Heroes of the Game, and there are many.  But to a man, there is little doubt the game’s heroes would proclaim that the America’s real heroes are the men and women of our armed forces. This Saturday, as a part of our annual Veteran’s Day Salute, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will honor America’s Heroes- the Men and Women of the Armed Forces, and welcome special guests Frederick D. Gregory, Admiral Ray Smith and Clinton L. Romesha who will participate in a roundtable discussion focused on the Hall of Fame’s values of commitment, integrity, courage, respect and excellence and how these core values can serve people in all walks of life.
