Men's Soccer and ROTC Team Up For Fifth Annual Living Our Legacy Game
Oct. 28, 2013
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Missouri State men’s soccer team has joined forces with the MSU Reserve Officer Training Corps program to stage the Living Our Legacy game. This year, the marquee game is set for Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m., when the Bears host MVC opponent SIU Edwardsville in their regular-season finale at Plaster Field.
In four previous Living Our Legacy matches, the Bears hold a 2-1-1 record. It is also no coincidence that the wins have corresponded with three of the top four all-time attendance figures in MSU history. The past three Living Our Legacy games have averaged 1,973 fans, while last season’s event produced the largest crowd in program history (2,395).
Prior to the game, tailgating will take place in Lot 22 across from Plaster Sports Complex (open at 4:30 p.m.). There will be free food including hot dogs, pulled pork, chips and water. Fans are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs, grills, food and drinks. For adults over the age of 21, beer is permitted in the tailgate area. There will be a free concert with Luna Jamboree, who is comprised of four Missouri State graduates. At 6 p.m., the MSU ROTC Program is sponsoring a 5K Run called the “Dash After Dark.” There is a $35 charge to run in the race and all proceeds will benefit the ROTC Program. As runner’s finish the 5K, they are encouraged to enter Plaster Sports Complex and watch the game. Further information is available at www.dashafterdark.com.

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) was established when President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Defense Act of 1916. Since its inception, Army ROTC has provided leadership and military training at schools and universities across the country and has commissioned more than a half million Officers. It is the largest commissioning source in the American military.
Army ROTC is one of the most demanding and successful leadership programs in the country. For years, Army ROTC has been creating leaders who go on to rewarding careers in the military and civilian worlds.
Army ROTC produces approximately 60 percent of the Second Lieutenants who join the active Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard. More than 40 percent of current Active Duty Army General Officers were commissioned through ROTC.
