ORCHARD PARK, NY - During halftime at Sunday's Bills- Chiefs game, the New York Army National Guard received a warm ovation from the fans.
One of those soldiers is from Buffalo.
A total of 150 National Guard soldiers took the field at halftime for Military Appreciation Day at the Ralph. They were also on the field before the game to help with the unveiling of a massive American flag.
Major General Patrick Murphy reaffirmed the troops' oath of enlistment during a halftime ceremony.
There was one particular soldier to keep an eye on. Specialist Tanika Mack was honored with special recognition for her efforts during Superstorm Sandy.
"I still think I'm just doing my job, trying to be the best person and soldier that I can be," said Mack, "and that doesn't take anything away from any other soldier, because everyone's trying to do what's best."
