PITTSBURGH, ALLEGHENY COUNTY – Pittsburgh Steeler safety Troy Polamalu announced Thursday he will cut his trademark mane on Veterans Day in an effort to spread awareness of issues of U.S. veterans.

Polamalu is partnering with the VFW for their Mane Event campaign to raise awareness for the issues of veterans returning from Iraq, Afghanistan, and other conflicts around the globe.

According to SteelersDepot, Polamalu has not cut his hair since college and his hair was insured by Head and Shoulders in 2010 for $1 million with Lloyd’s of London.
