The following release was provided by FOX Sports Midwest. I am more than pleased to do my small part in helping to promote this very worthy effort.
Troops will watch the game on American Forces Network. A live satellite link from Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan will allow FOX Sports Midwest to interview Fort Leonard Wood soldiers from the 463rd Military Police Company and 988th Military Police Company during the game. Troops’ family members will cheer on the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. The telecast may also include taped video greetings from Missouri National Guard airmen and soldiers in Egypt, Qatar and Afghanistan.
Cardinals fans attending the game can bring signs of appreciation. Fans watching on TV can tweet their greeting to the troops to @FSMidwest with the hashtag #ThisOnesForYou; greetings will be shown on TV.
When: Friday, May 25. The game begins at 7 p.m. CT/4:30 a.m. Afghanistan time. FOX Sports Midwest’s pregame show starts at 6:30 p.m. CT.
