Air Force to honor Texas victims before Army game

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The Air Force Academy will hold a moment of silence in honor of the shooting victims at Fort Hood before Saturday’s Army-Air Force game.

Academy spokesman Troy Garnhart says the observance will also honor soldiers from nearby Fort Carson who’ve been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The academy and Fort Carson are on the outskirts of Colorado Springs. Saturday’s game is at the academy’s Falcon Stadium.

Fort Carson spokeswoman Brandy Gill says a pep rally for the Army football team is still planned Friday night at the post. It’s not yet clear how the Fort Hood tragedy will be recognized.
