Airmen and their families are invited to a free Weber State University football game this Veteran's Day weekend. The university is planning to pay tribute to the military when the Wildcats face the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks Saturday, Nov. 12, at 1:30 p.m. at Stewart Stadium.
Col. Sarah Zabel, 75th Air Base Wing commander, will be an honorary captain for Weber State and will be performing the coin toss with the 75th ABW coin. Staff Sgt. Bruce Williams, 419th Logistics Readiness Squadron, will be singing the national anthem, the Hill Honor Guard will present the colors and the 388th Fighter Wing will perform a flyover prior to kickoff.
The event is designed to honor those who have served and those who are currently serving our armed forces. Fittingly, Zabel will perform an enlistment ceremony at halftime, swearing new recruits into the Air Force.
"Weber State and Hill Air Force Base enjoy strong ties, and to show our appreciation for the military's service, we are offering complimentary admission, compliments of SelectHealth, for all military personnel and their families to all Weber State athletic events leading up to the military appreciation football game on Nov. 12," said Ron Goch, assistant athletic director at Weber State. "This includes all volleyball, basketball and football home events; all that's required is a military ID."
All of Team Hill is encouraged to attend the game and cheer on the Wildcats while we honor those in uniform. Weber State has given the base 5,000 vouchers good for two free admissions to the game. Vouchers for free admission will be distributed through the chiefs and first sergeants. Check with your leadership for more information on obtaining a voucher.
