It's not new news, but it's news worth reporting.

During the two-minute warning of the first half of the Seahawks' Week 13 Monday Night Football matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, six Chinese American World War II veterans were honored on the field. The veterans are set to receive the Congressional Gold Medal and will be honored again at a ceremony in Washington D.C. of 2020.

Along with all of the team's efforts to support our armed forces, the Seahawks were sure to put aside a part of its in-game promotions to ensure that 12s do not forget the sacrifices made by veterans of the military.

A group of the veterans' family and friends gathered in a Seahawks suite prior to kickoff of the MNF game. "It's an honor to have them here and it's a great education for the fans," said Seahawks VP of Community Engagement Mike Flood. Flood also gifted the honorees with a ceremonial military coin from the Seahawks.
