Seven professional athletes and sports commentators along with a bus load of Fox Sports Girls got a sneak peek into the life of the 101st Airborne Division, Monday, when "Fox Sports 1" traveled to post as a part of their summer bus tour.
While viewers can tune into the new 24-hour sports network starting Saturday, which will offer live game coverage, original programming, news and more, the stop was about more than just promotion. It allowed the sports world to express their appreciation to U.S. Army Soldiers.
As a part of the visit, the athletes and FOX Sports girls from across the country revved up with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Rakkasans" for morning physical training and completed an indoor obstacle course event with their 101st Sustainment Brigade "Lifeliner" teammates. In the afternoon, they visited with Fort Campbell High School athletes and even spoke with 2nd Brigade Combat Team "Strike" combatives Soldiers before wrapping up the day by rappelling off the famous 34-foot tower at the Sabalauski Air Assault School on post.
