Veteran’s Day was Saturday, but Kyrie Irving is continuing to show his respect for the troops.

Following the Celtics 109-102 win against the Nets in Brooklyn Tuesday, Irving removed his jersey and game shoes and walked them over to two female veterans in attendance.

Irving gave the shoes to one of the service members and his jersey to the other during the Nets’ Military Appreciation night.

Both women were ecstatic to receive the memorabilia, with one repeatedly thanking Irving for the jersey.

Tuesday was Irving’s first game back since suffering a minor facial fracture that kept him out of Sunday’s game against the Raptors. Irving had to wear a mask throughout the game, but he still scored 25 points with five assists in the win.

The Celtics are currently sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference with a record of 13-2 behind Irving’s strong play this season after the team traded for him over the summer.
