Bob McDonald, will perform the national anthem, while the U.S. Army Color Guard from the Military District of Washington will present the flags. United States Navy Adm.

“Recognizing those who sacrificed so much for this country is a responsibility each of us should have, on Veterans Day and every day,” said Warren Brown, director of Market Positioning and Brand Strategy for Boeing Defense, Space & Security. “We’re proud to partner with the Capitals, not only for the Veterans Day game but all season, as the Capitals, Boeing, and the USO of Metropolitan Washington honor military service each night that the Caps rock the red.” About Boeing
