Today was Military Appreciation day at Penn State football. When I walked into the Bryce Jordan Center for the Military family tailgate I was shocked at the crowd. Hundreds of military members were given free tickets for the game to say thank you for their service.
As two youngsters dodged me on the way for a touchdown I snapped away. When I chatted to the family, both their parents who serve our country said how excited they were to be here in Happy Valley for an experience they’ll never forgot to see a college football game.
I thanked all the military members I talked to and they got my motivation up for the drenching game. Steady rain didn’t slow down the Nittany Lions on their 20-14 win over Army.
