A group of veterans got a very special treat when they were invited to The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon. To celebrate Veteran's Day, 11/11, No. 11 surprised the group, toured The Hall and gave them new Bose gear as a thank you for their service.
Julian Edelman chatted, welcomed and thanked each person before walking them through the museum, including the new Super Bowl LI exhibit, "The Anatomy of a Comeback," where Julian and his incredible catch are prominently featured. There, he stopped and spoke about the game and what it meant to share this day with them.
"They're the real heroes. We play our sport. We play make believe battles while these people go to real battle," Julian said. "They’re very much appreciated for that. We wouldn’t get to do what we get to do without them."
While the day was special for the veterans invited, it was also a great experience for Julian, who experienced "The Anatomy of a Comeback" for the first time with the honored guests.
"It was unbelievable. It was a humbling experience to get to walk through with people that go and lay their lives on the line for our freedom. To watch them enjoy the exhibit of something I was a part of it was a really cool experience," Julian said.
