Galloway Township, NJ – The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey’s women’s basketball team saluted our brave servicemen and servicewomen before and at halftime of the January 9, 2012, 6 p.m. game at the Sports Center here vs. Marymount.

At halftime, U.S. Air National Guard Senior Master Sergeant Scott Brown, a 29-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, presented a flag that was flown in battle in Iraq on November 7, 2011, to Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp. Brown is the father of Kelsey Brown, Stockton freshman center/forward from Washington Township, Gloucester County.

Fittingly, Brown scored a career-high 15 points with her father in attendance, yet the Ospreys suffered a 79-66 defeat in the contest.

Prior to tip-off, the Absecon VFW Memorial Post 9462 Color Guard performed the Presentation of Colors and the National Anthem was sung by Airman First Class Janelle Stokes of the 108th Wing of the New Jersey Air National Guard.

All servicemen and servicewomen in uniform or with military ID were admitted to the game free of charge.
