Happy Memorial Day everyone! I was able to attend a local service in my hometown this morning with about 1,000 other residents at the village green. With the streets lined with American flags and a somber tribute now behind me, I came home to find the below PSA for the well-known Wounded Warrior project in my email inbox. It features former Wildcat football standout, Fred “the Hammer” Williamson. I’d love to have you folks share some of your memories of Fred from his playing days, but today, as a host for this important organization, we feature a tip of the cap to all those who serve our country so that we can enjoy the freedoms we so dearly cherish, including college football Saturdays.
Fitz has long embraced the military as part of the Northwestern program. Whether it is an exhibition at Great Lakes Naval Base, correspondence with Wildcat fans overseas in active duty or the much publicized Navy Seals workout last summer, the armed forces are near and dear to the Wildcat Football Family.
