As Veterans Day arrived on Saturday, current and former members of the New England Patriots made sure to thank the true Patriots of this country through a variety of social media tributes to those who serve. Social media provided a powerful and emotional look into the personal lives of a few members of the Patriots who have loved ones in the Armed Forces.
Thank you to all those who have served our wonderful country!

Former quarterback Drew Bledsoe also made a special return to New England to participate in a football game against local veterans to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project organization at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood MA.
