UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. – Laura Benton, center, and family enjoy a Snowball tailgate event held by the local Non Commissioned Officers Association at the U.S. Air Force Academy vs. Army football game Nov. 4, 2017 at the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado.
Benton and other families who had loved ones die while on active duty are hosted in these events, leading up to the national Snowball Express event held in Texas each year. All Snowball events aim to let families, especially children, know they are not forgotten and to connect them with families in similar situations to now they are not alone.
