CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns will honor servicemen and servicewoman during Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Cleveland will recognize members from each military branch, as well as family members who support them.

During the pregame, USAA Military Affairs Representative Mike Warner will join the Browns at midfield as the team's honorary Browns Give Back First and Ten Coin Toss Captain.

Warner served in the military for more than 32 years and retired in 2016.

He will present the game’s officials with a unique military challenge coin, designed and created by USAA, that will be used for the coin toss.

After the national anthem, there will be a flyover by four F-16s from the Ohio Air National Guard's 180th Fighter Wing, as long as the weather permits it.

This week's Dawg Pound Captain will be United States Marine Corps veteran Cpl. Micah Herndon.

Herndon inspired the nation after crawling to the finish line of the 2019 Boston Marathon.

Browns General Manager John Dorsey will represent the team as its 2019 Salute to Service Award nominee, which recognizes players, coaches, personnel and alumni who honor and support the military community.

Dorsey is always involved when military members visit the team.

He attended Leonard Hall Junior Military Academy in Maryland and Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy, which inducted him into the institute’s Hall of Fame in 2016.
