WWE to honor U.S. military on Memorial Day on Raw

This Memorial Day, at the beginning of Monday Night Raw airing at 8 p.m. ET May 29 on USA Network, WWE will once again honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country.

Here is how WWE will be paying tribute to the brave men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom.

WWE is very supportive of the U.S. armed forces, including the annual Tribute to the Troops special.

Also, during the recent WrestleMania 33 Week, WWE joined forces with Full Sail University, the Central Florida Sports Commission and the City of Orlando in hosting a Veteran Employment Panel and Networking Event in support of Hire Heroes USA. The event gave nearly 150 veterans an opportunity to receive one-on-one career coaching and then network with key employers from the Orlando area, including Lockheed Martin, Hilton, ADP and many more.
