This week the Cheyenne Stampede honored many service men and women with Military appreciation weekend. They wanted to show their thanks to all service men, women servicing our country. They also wanted to say thank you to all Veterans for their service.

What better way to show support than to have Military honor guard, sing the national anthem.
