Military Outreach

The Carolina Panthers are dedicated to honoring our service men and women. The Panthers and USO of North Carolina (USO-NC), the team's military partner, work to create opportunities and experiences for our region's troops and provide them with a genuine sense of appreciation and gratitude for their commitment to our country. It is impossible to fully repay the troops for the sacrifices they make on our behalf, but the Panthers and USO-NC are committed to that effort.

USO of North Carolina

The USO of North Carolina and the Carolina Panthers work together year-round to connect our military service members to family, home and country. From organizing team visits to military installations, to honoring our service members on the field and even hosting team building events, the USO of NC assists the Carolina Panthers with all of their military outreach efforts.

The USO of North Carolina strengthens our service members and military families through critical, life changing and even life-saving programs and services. For more information on military programming, contact Megan Grady at m.grady@uso-nc.org, and to donate, visit www.uso-nc.org.

Row of Honor

The Row of Honor is a distinctive row of eight seats in Bank of America Stadium that is reserved for and recognizes active duty service personnel and veterans. Each seat in the Row of Honor features the official emblem of all five U.S. Military service branches. Seats 1-6 have a digital camouflage design, while seats 7-8 are unique. In addition to being camouflaged, seat 7 displays the crest of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, and a Purple Heart recipient sits there each game. Seat 8 is ceremonial black and honors POW/MIAs. In tribute, this seat remains permanently unoccupied.

Military Base Visits

The Carolina Panthers and USO-NC organize annual visits to military bases across the Carolinas. Coaches, players, TopCats and Sir Purr participate in every visit, interacting with troops for special recognition and shared experiences.

Military Training Camp Visits

The Carolina Panthers and USO-NC work directly with military bases in the Carolinas to recognize and thank military personnel for their service with an exclusive experience at the team's training camp each summer at Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C.

Re-enlistment Ceremony

The Carolina Panthers re-enlistment ceremonies are an outreach program to provide a unique opportunity to thank military personnel and their family for their duty to our nation. The Panthers host service men/ women and their families on select days during the year at Bank of America Stadium for a personal re-enlistment ceremony.

Fallen Heroes

The Carolina Panthers, USO of North Carolina and TAPS partner to honor the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice during the Nation’s current conflict (2001-present). The team honored the memory of service men and women killed in action by featuring their initials on the back of player helmets. Each of the active dressed players was assigned initials of a fallen service member.  If interested in having your loved one honored, please contact TAPS
