    Wow!! Very cool! I'm trying to think of the logistics of all that...how it was arranged. Great gesture, though!

    Small nit: He's not a soldier, he's a Marine.

    Pats did that at halftime Sunday night, they had three wifes and kids out on the field and video messages from the husbands overseas were played, then they got to the last wife and the guy runs out onto the field in uniform

    No, they were planning a full field flag prior to the game but had the cancel it because of the wind so they had servicemen run out with flags

    Detroit's decision to do this may actually have been their greatest accomplishment in team history, and their classiest move in a long time.
