Military Appreciation Day In Kansas

Associated Press - March 24, 2015 6:26 am

The names of 10 soldiers killed in combat in the past year will be added next week to a memorial walk outside the 1st Infantry Division headquarters building at Fort Riley.

Gov. Sam Brownback has proclaimed Wednesday as Military Appreciation Day in Kansas.

Brownback said in a statement Monday that the goal of his proclamation is to better recognize the men and women of the U.S. armed forces.

Brownback plans to meet with his military council Wednesday in Topeka after signing the proclamation. The governor is expected to get an update on federal military issues and discuss their potential effect on Kansas.

The Governor’s Military Council was founded in 2004 and works to protect military activities in the state.

Kansas is home to the storied Army posts of Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth and McConnell Air Force Base outside Wichita.
