ST. LOUIS -- FOX Sports Midwest once again held its "This One's For You" night on Friday, helping to connect St. Louis-based military men and women with their families.
The game was shown simultaneously on the American Forces Network, with FSMW also providing a live satellite link to Afghanistan. Over that link, Missouri National Guard soldiers from the 1138th transportation company were interviewed from Afghanistan, while families of troops overseas attended the game and appeared on television as well.
The 1138th transportation company is based at Jefferson Barracks in south St. Louis County. The company, consisting of 170 soldiers, provides convoy security and supply distribution to coalition forces.
It's the fourth time that the Cardinals' broadcast holder has done "This One's For You," with the first occurrence back in 2005.
