The Kansas City Chiefs have had a great relationship with the brave men and women of our Armed Forces in recent memory and that wasn’t about to change under new head coach Romeo Crennel.
Growing up in a military family, Crennel knows what it’s like to constantly be on the move. On Wednesday he talked to students at Fort Leavenworth’s Patton Junior High School about his time at Fort Still and Fort Hood.
“I’m an old army brat myself,” Crennel told the students according to the Chiefs official site. “I know what you guys go through when you move from place to place, and I understand it isn’t easy.”
The Chiefs coach was at the school speaking with military students along with the Chiefs Cheerleaders, KC Wolf and eight linebackers to put on a “Play 60” event.
No matter how many times the franchise visits with military personnel and their families, it’s special every time. I can only imagine it was most rewarding for army brat Crennel and LB Caleb Campbell, a lieutenant in the Army.
If history is any indication, this won’t be the final time this offseason we see the Chiefs get involved with local members of the Armed Forces. If you’ll remember, during training camp last season, Todd Haley had 14 airmen take part in drills during a practice.
