SPARTANBURG – On the last day of training camp on Aug. 19, a number of service men and women got a special treat.
The Panthers partnered with USAA to host more than 100 active military men and women for a special Salute to Service boot camp on the fields at Wofford.
The group got to watch the Panthers and Ravens practice throughout the morning before they took the field themselves.
Military men and women got to go through football drills similar to the NFL’s annual combine while also going through fun, training camp practice drills.
USAA and the Panthers annually work to support and honor active military families and veterans through events like this month’s boot camp and a number of different campaigns and events during Salute to Service month in November.
Service members came from the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot on Morris Island, Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, Shaw Air Force Base, Fort Jackson, Fort Gordon and Joint Base Charleston.
