Date:11/5/2007

CHICAGO, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- Players for the NFL's Chicago Bears will visit hospitalized veterans Tuesday, November 6, 2007, at the North Chicago VA medical center, as part of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Celebrity Entertainment Program.

Players are scheduled to visit the hospital at 2:30 p.m., to honor veterans for serving our nation by signing autographs, presenting patients with souvenirs, and helping brighten the day for those who have sacrificed so much for the cause of freedom.

The visit by Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams and safety Josh Gattis to the North Chicago VA medical center, 3001 Green Bay Road, North Chicago, Ill., is part of the team's observance of Veterans Day. The Chicago Bears join other NFL teams, Major and Minor League Baseball players, NASCAR drivers, country music singers and others participating in the DAV Celebrity Entertainment program. They are generously donating their time to remember the men and women who sacrificed greatly in defense of liberty.

"We are proud the Chicago Bears are part of our Celebrity Entertainment Program," said DAV National Commander Robert T. Reynolds. "I know that their visit to the North Chicago VA medical center will bring a great deal of joy to the men and women veterans being treated there. Many of these wonderful veterans rarely get visitors. They have sacrificed a great deal to defend our nation's liberty, and they should get the respect and care they deserve."

The 1.3 million-member Disabled American Veterans, a non-profit organization founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1932, represents this nation's disabled veterans. It is dedicated to a single purpose: building better lives for our nation's disabled veterans and their families. For more information, visit the organization's Web site http://www.dav.org.
