H and I attended the UF-FAU football game last weekend. We were inspired by the way that veterans were honored throughout the game- at practically every timeout. The Independent Florida Alligator: News - Football game honors soldiers who fought in Iraq
Truly awesome when 90,000 people stood and cheered these soldiers.
They had video clips running on the big monitors, of soldiers in Iraq giving a shoutout to their parents, girlfriends, siblings, friends. At one point in the game, they had several UF alumni currently serving come out onto the field, and gave a short bio of each- where they served/were serving, what they had done.
It's part of this initiative: Operation Tribute to Freedom :: Supporting Soldiers in The War on Terrorism
This is a great initiative; hope lots of schools are participating!
