The NEO Athletic Department is seeking recommendations for area veterans and military personnel. The athletic department at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) is seeking recommendations for area veterans and military personnel to be honored during the second annual Military Appreciation Night at Red Robertson Field. The event is in conjunction with a home football game Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015 against Tyler, Texas. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Sponsored by the NEO Athletic Department, the individuals selected will be honored during game day festivities.
Last year’s honorees included: Bill Edwards, Alan and Sara McQuigg, Harry Slifer, Don Trolinger and Michael Whaley. “The community is encouraged to nominate any military personnel or veterans they know. NEO is especially interested in honoring those veterans who served in WWII, the Korean War, or the Vietnam War, but all veterans and military personnel are welcome for recommendation,” said Dale Patterson, NEO athletic director. “This is a great opportunity to pay tribute to members of our community who have dedicated their service to our country.”
