I sort of posted this in a FanShot earlier today as I was on my way out of the house, but I wanted to update as to exactly what the commitment was for. Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan has made a $1 million financial commitment and will help in leading efforts to aid veterans returning from service get assimilated back into the community.

When he purchased the Jaguars, Khan mentioned investing in the community as well as the Jaguars. We've seen Khan's name attached to a few community things already, such as possibly buying and renovating a building or two downtown, but he's now made a financial commitment to a big part of the Jacksonville community. The military.

Khan commented in a team release on the donation:

"In my short time in Jacksonville I have seen the impact and the importance of the military here in this community," Jaguars owner Shahid Khan said. "We're honored to be able to help support and assist members of the military upon their return. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their loyal and selfless service to protect us and our freedoms, and we hope this commitment will benefit many veterans in their pursuit of training, jobs, housing and quality of life with their families."
