Saturday’s home game with Old Dominion is Military Appreciation Day in Lane Stadium. Pregame ceremonies will feature a flyover of two F-22 Raptors of the Virginia Air National Guard’s 192nd Fighter Wing, which is based at Langley Air Force Base.
The F-22 Raptor is a stealth tactical fighter aircraft with a top speed of nearly 1,500 mph and a range of more than 1,800 miles.
Before the game, members of the Corps of Cadets will be collecting donations for the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia, at all gates in Lane Stadium. Since 2001, the Corps has collected more than $200,000 for the memorial, and is the largest, non-corporate sponsor of the D-Day memorial.
