Military Appreciation football game set for Nov. 16 versus Southern Utah


The Nov. 16 Bobcat football game versus Southern Utah has been designated MSU's Military Appreciation game. Kickoff is at 4:05 p.m. in Bobcat Stadium.

As part of the event, MSU and the MSU Bookstore have partnered with Operation Hat Trick to generate awareness, support and funding for the recovery of America's veterans and active service members.

To support the program, interested individuals may purchase an Operation Hat Trick-branded Bobcat hat at the MSU Bookstore. All proceeds are distributed to selected organizations that provide direct services to wounded warriors.

OHT is a 501c3 organization that supports numerous veteran support organizations such as - Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Bethesda, Homes for Our Troops, Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, and the Mission Continues. The program was born at the University of New Hampshire to honor two fallen Navy SEALs. Since then, the OHT program has evolved into a national program with participation by more than 150 universities throughout the country.
