Photos of How War Veterans Honoured in Sports This Weekend

North Bay Battalion Camouflage Jerseys 2013

Today is Veterans Day, or Remembrance Day depending on where you live. Despite the difference in name one thing we all do on this day is take time to remember the sacrifices made by those who fought for our freedom and still do to this day.

In sports this past weekend many teams honoured war veterans by wearing various uniforms or decals. Some went purely patriotic wearing stars-and-stripes motifs, some replicated the uniforms worn by soldiers by going out in camouflage, and others wore just a  poppy – which is how civilians pay respects to vets in Canada and the UK.

Below is a photo gallery of how several different teams across different sports in North America and the United Kingdom paid their respects. Click any image for a larger version of that photo
