Every year during the first weeks of February the largest sports show in North America is held in Harrisburg.

This year’s dates were Feb 5-13.

Historically about 10,000 visitors filter through Northeast Hall where we are positioned and of that number about 2,000 visit our booth.

This year 1E2 (Carlisle Co.) and 1E3 (Harrisburg Co.) shared the duties of manning the booth.

They were assisted by the local ROTC battalion from Millersville and Dickinson College and Drill Sergeants from the 94th Reserve Training Division.

The booth partnered with the Army Heritage and Education Center to maximize Army exposure at the show.
