Several UNLV and UNR alumni and supporters gathered together to pose for our very own "Battle for the Fremont Cannon" photo in support of the October 3rd game and in memory of one of our own. Pictured on the left is SSG Derek Petersen who is holding the name and number of SSG Matthew Sneck, who was a 2008 season walk on at UNR. SSG Sneck was tragically killed in a motorcycle crash in Henderson on April 1st, 2009. He had served 5 years in the Wildhorse Squadron prior to his walk on and volunteered to return for the unit to serve in Afghanistan. SSG Sneck was very well known, liked, and is greatly missed by the troopers of the squadron.
