Cardinals take time to honor military on Veterans Day

TEMPE, Ariz. – The Cardinals practiced on Veterans Day, and of course they had their minds on the task at hand, which is preparing for the Seahawks and Sunday Night Football, but they also took some time to honor those who have served, and those who still serve in the military, and the sacrifices they’ve made, and continue to make for our freedom.

Head coach Bruce Arians:

“My father and my uncles are all passed away now, but they were all in the military. I can’t say enough about our Armed Forces and what they mean to us. Thank God we have them and I hope they all get home soon and safe.”

Quarterback Carson Palmer:

“It’s an awesome day to come to work. For all the people that give us this opportunity to come to work and be a part of something special. I want to say ‘Thank you’ to all the vets out there. Obviously my father and my older brother, Robert, for the sacrifices they’ve made and all veterans have made for us.”

Cornerback Patrick Peterson:

“My grandfather, my mom’s dad, he’s a veteran. That’s pretty much where I get my ways from, because my grandfather was the one that raised me, (with) my mom having me at a very young age, so I always thank my grandfather for not only raising me, but for what he’s done for this country as well.”

Defensive tackle Calais Campbell:

“My father served, so that’s pretty cool. My grandfather, on my dad’s side, a lot of service there, so I really do appreciate all those guys who make it available for us to live the life we want to live. Salute them. Salute to the veterans, (I) appreciate it.”
