Scarlet & Gray Salute

Mission Statement:

Here at Ohio State we want to honor and support both current and former members of the United States Armed Forces. We think the best way to honor them is to engage the military community by taking a meaningful and everlasting approach. Ohio State Athletics will be holding Military Appreciation Games to recognize the men and women for their dedication and the personal sacrifices they’ve made for this country. Their honor, courage, and commitment is nothing short of remarkable.
