As a proud University of Wyoming Alumni, the Pokes have a special spot in my heart.

Even if you're not a Pokes fan, this video of UW Linebacker Ben Wisdorf receiving a special message from his deployed brother Sargent Wisdorf is sure to make you tear up a bit.

To see this heartfelt message from one brother to another really brought home what life for the family of our deployed military members is truly like.

The Pokes went on to win this game, and I'd be willing to bet this message was part of what helped our team stay strong.

Thank you to all of our military men and women for your service, and thank you to all of their families for the sacrifices you've made for our freedom.

GO POKES!
