Bumped. Our post went up on Armed Forces Day this past weekend but we wanted to make sure folks don't miss this. If you have a story to share, please do. GO BRUINS. - BN Eds.
Today marks Armed Forces Day, held on the third Saturday of May each year, which conveniently builds up nicely to Memorial Day the following weekend, where we honor the men and women who, to paraphrase Lincoln, made the ultimate sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
As some of you may know, our parent network, so to speak, has rolled out a pretty neat YouTube channel and SBN is hoping to put together a collection of videos from veterans recounting their favorite sports memory while deployed.
So, if you've served in our great military, first, thank you for your service, and second, if you've got a particularly favorite or interesting sports memory from your time overseas, feel free to head on over to SBN and share. Did you catch the Super Bowl from Kabul? Watch a dramatic Game 7 in the World Series aboard the USS Bunker Hill? Did you watch 13-9 from Okinawa? Tell us, because (I'm sure I speak for everyone on this) we'd love to hear.
All the details can be found on the SBN main page here.
