CAMP BUEHRING, Kuwait — Some Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders stopped by Sunday evening to entertain a crowd of soldiers as part of a USO tour.
The cheerleaders spoke to the crowd in between dances and also posed with soldiers who were recording video introductions for the Vikings’ lineup. Only soldiers from Minnesota were asked to record introductions.
Among the soldiers who got to introduce players were Austin’s Spc. Trevor Kolb, of the 1135th Combat Support Company and Spc. Douglas Anderson, of Rochester’s Bravo Company. Sgt. Ken Laite, of Albert Lea’s Delta Company also got to record an introduction.
The soldiers were asked to say the player’s position, number and name into a camera while cheerleaders stood by. The introductions are expected to be shown at the Nov. 20 home game against the Oakland Raiders.
