We regret to inform you that this year's Husker Fans Salute The Troops is cancelled due to the coronavirus. We have also cancelled the Golf Scramble that was to take place in June. We are in the process of possibly rescheduling the golf outing to September. Check back on our website as I will keep you notified if we can do this.
Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy. GBR
Help us honor our military men and women by donating HERE.
Our mission is to salute Nebraska Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines: active duty, national guard, reserve, retired and veterans, to say “Thank you for your service to our Nation” so they know the Husker Nation will never forget their sacrifice and dedication.
This is an unprecedented event in the history of military support to the Armed Forces. This weekend hosts troops and their families from all services, of all ranks, to come together and cheer on their team. This weekend is more than just a watch party, though. It is a chance for these servicemen and women to be treated like the heroes.
2020 marks the 13th year for this event. 2008 was our first year held during the OU game and attended by about 70 troopers and their families. Since then we have had to limit our attendance as it has grown to nearly 500 attendees. Each year we try to improve the troopers experience and being our eleventh year we are expecting this to be the best.
Registration is limited to members of all branches of the United States Military, active or retired.
The "Salute" organization will provide: On Saturday Meet former Husker Football greats! Attend a watch party for when Nebraska takes on Illinois, complete with food, drinks, door prizes and special activities for the kids. A free night stay at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel that night. Sunday a brunch to honor our military men and women with special a guest speaker. First time registrants will have to pay only a small $40 non-refundable registration fee to hold their reservation and repeat registrants will have to pay a $65 non-refundable registration fee.
We cannot do this without the support of Husker fans everywhere. The “Salute” weekend provides military members a unique opportunity to spend a dream weekend around something they love. Our board's goal is to provide this weekend for the military families at no cost to them except a nominal registration fee.
