Fort Riley To Lead Wildcats On Field

More than 800 Fort Riley soldiers and their families will participate next weekend in festivities at the Kansas State University football game against Montana State.

Command Sergeant Major James Champagne of the 1st Infantry Division will lead the Wildcat football team onto the field before the evening game.

Helicopters will fly over the stadium during the playing of the national anthem, and soldiers killed in combat will be honored.

Soldiers and representatives from Fort Riley will participate in the coin toss.

At halftime, the 1st Infantry Division Band will perform with the Kansas State and more than 20 high school bands. A video skit will feature Willie the Wildcat mascot and soldiers.

The football team will present the game ball to wounded soldiers.
