CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Free tickets for the Mountain West rivalry with Air Force at the University of Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium, on Sept. 25, are available to Wyoming veterans thanks to a joint venture of the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Veterans Commission.
There are 500 free tickets available to Wyoming veterans for the game, in Laramie. Kickoff is at noon. Veterans can request two tickets per veteran by contacting the Wyoming Veterans Commission at (307) 265-7372, in Casper.
Veterans will need to provide their name, mailing address, and some basic proof of their veteran status such as a veterans service organization membership, VA health care eligibility, retired military status, or other proof of veteran status.
Proof of status over the phone is sufficient. All requests for tickets must be received by the close of business on Sept. 8 and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Tickets will be mailed, as the orders are filled and no later than Sept. 8.
Veterans are invited to a special pre-game on-field recognition ceremony and will help cheer on the Cowboys as they enter the field.
"Thank you to the University of Wyoming Athletic Department for supporting Wyoming veterans," said Ron Wood, Wyoming Veterans Commission chairman. "Wyoming veterans have a long tradition of supporting Cowboy football. This is a great way to recognize our veterans' service to our state and nation."
