Honoring the fallen

The WHS football team joined forces with the local Wheatland VFW Post 3558 to pay a special tribute to the fallen service members who died in Afghanistan.

In a moving tribute to honor the 13 service members who were killed Aug. 24 in an explosion at the Kabul Airport in Afghanistan, the Wheatland High School student body along with the VFW Post 3558 remembered the slain soldiers with 13 empty chairs that were set up behind the Bulldog bench along the sidelines. Each chair had a folded American flag that were carried in by members of the Bulldog football team. Players whose numbers are visible are #65 Carson Kenast, #4 Call McCrea, #52 Jordyn Pearson, #54 Ora Borton and #35 Hyannie Fausto. Full story can be found in our sports section.
