­ Fort Bragg soldiers, currently deployed, will be able to watch their sons play in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 4-AA football championship game. The Butler vs. Jack Britt 4AA title game will be streamed live so that soldiers can access the game from overseas. The game

if they were able to cheer on their sons from the sidelines.² […]
