Coach Joe Lombardi exemplifies the true meaning of a Salute to Service nominee. He attended the U.S. Air Force Academy and went on to serve the United States of America for four years upon graduating from the Academy. Although Coach Lombardi has only been with the Chargers for a short amount of time, he has taken the skills he learned from his years in the military and transferred them onto the field. The respect that he has earned is unmatched, not only on the field, but off the field as well. The grit, discipline, encouragement, and true compassion for others does not go unnoticed. Coach Lombardi has received recognition and been honored in the past for his service, and he will participate in several Los Angeles Chargers Salute to Service activities this season.
