WWE announced that the 15th annual WWE Tribute to the Troops event will be Tuesday, Dec. 5 at Naval Base San Diego with a two-hour special airing Thursday, Dec. 14 at 8/7C on USA Network.
WWE began Tribute to the Troops in 2003 as a way to honor the servicemen and women and their families, and it is considered one of TV’s most patriotic and heartwarming shows of the year. In the tradition of Bob Hope, WWE brings together the best of sports, entertainment and pop culture with celebrity appearances and performances from music’s most popular acts.
While in San Diego, WWE Superstars will spend time giving back to military personnel and their families. Activities include a Be a STAR bullying prevention rally, as well as hospital visits and military outreach initiatives at various installations including Naval Base San Diego, Naval Air Station North Island and San Diego Naval Medical Center.
“We are thrilled to welcome WWE for their 15th annual Tribute to the Troops celebration continuing what has become a great tradition during the holiday season,” San Diego Naval Base Commanding Officer Capt. Roy Love said in a release. “The servicemen and women of San Diego could not be more excited, and look forward to participating in this inspirational event.”

WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon added:“It is a privilege to honor our servicemen and women for their commitment and sacrifice to our nation. Tribute to the Troops is our most meaningful show of the year and we are proud to continue the tradition at Naval Base San Diego.”
