President Obama is expected to celebrate Veterans Day with 7,000 spectators onboard the United States Navy Aircraft Carrier - The USS Carl Vinson at the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic. All eyes will be on the open air stadium as two of the nation’s top basketball teams compete in a game created to celebrate Veterans Day and pay tribute to all those who have put their lives on the line for our freedom.

While it’s the first time that an NCAA basketball game has been held on an aircraft carrier, it’s not the first time that 5.11 Tactical® gear is the choice of those providing high-level security.
