Veterans

Each year, ESPN dedicates a week of multiplatform content in November as part of its annual America's Heroes: A Salute to our Veterans initiative to salute veterans and active members of the United States Armed Forces. This year's Veterans Week will be held Nov. 7-14 in recognition of Veterans Day and will comprise of highlights and features on ESPN's platforms and programming, including Salute to Service shows on First Take and Military Content on ESPN+.

ESPN also is committed to supporting organizations dedicated to those that have served. This includes teaming up with Disabled American Veterans (DAV) to support virtual career fairs that provide access to critical employment opportunities to transitioning military members, veterans and their spouses seeking new or better jobs. Additionally, ESPN pairs employees as mentors with veterans and their spouses through the American Corporate Partners (ACP) program, which connects post 9/11 veterans to business professionals for mentoring, career counseling and networking.
