Quantcast HuskerMax


Dear Readers: As most of you know, Husker Dan's Army was established a couple of years ago to help men and women in our armed forces who are serving in the Middle East. Since its inception, HDA, with the help of the Northeast Kansans For Nebraska (a Husker alumni group in Topeka, Kansas), the Red Zone in Omaha and the generosity of Husker fans, have enabled us in a small way, to thank these brave men and women for serving their country. The Red Zone ships Husker Care packages that are filled with Husker items such as T-shirts, caps, posters, media guides etc. Shot Kleen, with HuskerVision at UNL, also sends Husker game day DVDs to those service men and women who sign up with Husker Dan's Army.

The purpose of this message is to let you know about a very special event coming up later this fall. Please circle your calendar for the weekend of November 1st and 2nd for the "Husker Fans Salute To The Troops" celebration in Lincoln, NE. The "Salute" will be our way of saying thanks to all those who have served our country.

Saturday, November 1st, there will be a Husker Football TV Watch Party at the Cornhusker Hotel. There will be plenty of food, beer and soda. That day, the Huskers play the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman. It will be the first reunion of Bo Pelini and Bob Stoops and should be a great game. We've also tentatively scheduled a tour of Memorial Stadium at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. The following day, there will be a brunch and an awards ceremony. We are hoping to get former Husker football players and coaches to attend the celebration, too.

One hundred rooms have been set aside at the Cornhusker Hotel that weekend. Needless to say, we are going to need your financial help to make this event become a reality. Donors have already stepped up to get the project going, but we are still far short of our goal.

Please go to the following link for details to see how you can register and how you can become a donor. http://www.huskersalute.org/
