He Salutes You
A strong supporter of the U.S. Armed Services, Brian Vickers got the chance to meet the fighting men and women he admires when a few dozen soldiers from Fort Hood, Texas, visited the Red Bull Energy Station on Saturday.
“I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to meet the men and women that serve this country,” Vickers said, “defending the rights and protecting the freedoms that allow us to come out and race every Sunday.”
Fort Hood, about a three-hour drive south of Texas Motor Speedway in Killeen, has more than 52,000 soldiers currently assigned and is one most diverse military posts anywhere in the world. It’s the country’s only two-division post, as the 1st Cavalry Division and 4th Infantry Division are based at Fort Hood, as well as the 13th Sustainment Command. One out of every 10 Army soldiers on active duty is assigned there.
