Dores on the Web

Nov. 10, 2017

The latest buzz on the web surrounding the Vanderbilt Commodores: Vanderbilt athletics is honoring Veterans Day with a number of events on campus this weekend. Through a special partnership with Medals of Honor, Vanderbilt footballs Deep Water uniforms will feature names of fallen servicemen and women on the back with the soldiers' military branch patch on the front of the jersey. The Commodores' coaching staff will wear special Salute to Service sweatshirts with names of fallen servicemen and women on the front and their branch patches on the sleeve. Check out all of our #SalutetoService content here.
