    This is a great time to remember our troops and veterans. July 4th, Independence day is three days away.
    Help support the great women and men by going to www.huskersalute.org and buy a Husker Salute Challenge coin, a hat, of a t-shirt.
    Those purchases go to raise funds for our Husker Salute event Oct 20 -21, 2012.

    You can also donate to Husker Salute at our sight as well.

    This is our fifth year for the event.
    In the 4 years of the event we have reached out to over 1000 troops and veterans abd their families. This event is a great week end
    for these folks

    Here is a special reminder. If you see a veteran of Viet Nam be sure to greet them with a hearty hand shake
    and say " welcome home". They need a special reminder that we care.

    Thanks Gary

    Gary and Dan have started something that is a labor of love. Everyone involved in the weekend demonstrates why people outside the great state of Nebraska are amazed at the class of the Husker fan base. It's something you have to experience first hand ( I've been fortunate to experience it for the past eight years) to appreciate.

    THANK YOU Gary and Dan
