Salute to Service


Change of Command

Since 2012, the Seattle Seahawks and USAA have annually honored a military unit with a "12" flag as the team's honored military unit for the season.  The ceremony mirrors a deep-rooted military tradition, the change of command ceremony, where an outgoing commander formally transitions responsibility and authority of a unit to a new commander.  The Seahawks welcomed their 2015 honored military unit - Marines Security Forces Battalion - Bangor - through a flag hand-off ceremony with U.S. Coast Guard 13th District. The Coast Guard hosted the event on base and the Seahawks' trademark "12" flag was transferred.
