Members of the Steelers pay tribute to those who lost their lives for our country on Memorial Day

Players for the Pittsburgh Steelers pay tribute on social media to those who have paid the ultimate price serving our country on Memorial Day.

Some often chastise professional athletes due to their massive pay checks, but don't think these players aren't appreciative to be able to make such a salary in a country as awesome as the United State of America. It is on this Memorial Day when everyone, including members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, take time to thank those who have paid the ultimate price for our country, giving us the freedom to be able to watch and play sports like football.

Members of the Steelers took to social media to say 'Thank You' to those not only who have lost their lives serving our country, but also to those who are serving our country currently. We here at BTSC do the same as we pay our respects for the fallen, and thank those who are currently serving to keep us safe here at home.

(Editor's Note: This story will be updated throughout the day as more players post to their accounts.)
