On Saturday, my husband and I went to our second Royals game of the season. Since we are not native Missourians(??), we aren't that much into the Royals, but we do enjoy going to sporting events. This particular game was special, however, and we went for another purpose than just for fun.
It was Armed Forces Appreciation Day in the stadium, and my Airman was a part of the ceremony! First, we enjoyed a performance by the Army Drill Team (spinning rifles) which was really impressive. After that, a soldier played our National Anthem on his saxophone, and it was a beautiful performance. While he was playing, a huge American flag was spread out over the baseball field by about 20 enlisted men and women from all branches of the military (my Airman included!).
