Challenger Flies at NCAA Men’s Basketball Final
April 6, 2015
Before the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final began on April 6, 2015, the air was electric with excitement inside Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Duke Blue Devils vs Wisconsin Badgers – both teams poised to claim victory.
The anticipation grew – and the pregame ceremony made it more than special. This is the memory many will keep in their hearts for years to come.
USA Today said it best: “The great anthems involve military bands playing the song of the country for which they fight. And that’s why the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets from the U.S. Army Band’s Pershing’s Own, joined by musicians from three major Indiana universities (Ball State, Indiana, Purdue) played a flawless anthem before a flawless game between Duke and Wisconsin. Oh, and it never hurts to have a bald eagle flying around either.”
We know that eagle. There is no other like him. He is special beyond words. His name is CHALLENGER, and he is a Living Symbol of our country!
