Tonight is the night, Pittsburgh native, music icon, and son of a veteran Bret Michaels comes home to join Steelers alum and Vietnam Veteran Rocky Bleier, to honor active duty service members and veterans during the Steelers Salute to Service game against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football (ESPN, 8:15 p.m.).
“I could not be more honored to be on Monday Night Football at Heinz field standing by Rocky Bleier and Nelson Lowes, saluting our veterans and service members around the globe.” Says Bret Michaels
Michaels and The Steelers will be participating in the Salute to Service game, an annual NFL initiative which honors our nation’s service members, veterans, and their families. Prior to the game, Michaels, Bleier, and the Steelers fan of the year, Army Veteran Nelson E. Lowes will conduct the legendary Terrible Towel twirl. The Steelers and Bleier will also be honoring Michaels’ late Father, veteran Wally Sychak, with a dedication and donation to his American Legion hall.
