Husker Fans Salute the Troops|
The Husker Fans Salute the Troops event was created to honor Nebraskans in all military branches including active duty, reserve, Guard, and veterans with a day in Lincoln focused on Husker football.
The event begins Saturday, October 20th, with a tour of Nebraska athletic facilities culminating with a Tunnel Walk at Memorial Stadium. After the tour, the group assembles at the Cornhusker Marriott for a Northwestern-Nebraska game watch party. On Sunday, October 21st, an awards brunch with honor guard concludes the weekend.
This is a unique opportunity to honor those who selflessly serve our country by providing them the chance to come to Lincoln and spend a dream weekend of Husker football.
There are many gracious donors who cover part of the cost of the event. Husker Salute would like to transport Wounded Warriors to this event, but additional funds are needed. Husker Salute needs an additional $15,000 for the 2012 event. We take donations starting at $25, but also could use $1,000 to $5,000 sponsors.
