For the 2013 Military Appreciation game that Montana State played on November 16th against Southern Utah University the Bobcats donned special blue and camo jerseys with military inspired slogans on the back. The special uniforms meant to honor America's service men and women were a joint venture between Montana State Athletics and the Warriors and Quiet Waters foundation.
The auction of these uniforms is going on now at http://auction.msubobcats.com and all proceeds will go to benefit the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation. The auction will not end before Dec. 16, 2013 but the closing date will be extended as the Bobcat season continues into playoff season. Signed jerseys of senior student-athletes will be made available once their eligibility is exhausted as per NCAA rules so please keep checking back into the auction site!
We know that BobcatNation can help make a difference here and would like to thank all of our loyal readers for all of the support they can give to this great cause. And you could get one of the coolest jerseys MSU has ever worn on top of it!

About the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation
Warriors and Quiet Waters provide traumatically injured U.S. servicemen and women from Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts with a high quality restorative program, utilizing the therapeutic experience of fly-fishing on Montana waters.
WQW brings wounded warriors to Montana for a six day program of fly fishing and recreation. Most warriors who come are still in rehab in the military hospital system. Once here, they have the opportunity to relax and to learn to fly fish in the quiet and beautiful surroundings of Montana and neighboring Yellowstone Park.
The program provides transportation, accommodations, meals, and gives each warrior a complete fly fishing outfit including rod, reel and waders to keep so they can continue to fish when they leave MT – all at no cost to them. The program supports these wounded warriors through the generosity of its donors and many volunteers.
