Dozens of Dyess airmen and their families were treated to the ultimate Dallas Cowboys experience with the help of two local companies.

Arrow Ford and VIP Sports Getaway teamed up to send 50 Dyess airmen and their families to watch the game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins on Saturday.

It is their way to help benefit the program, Salute To Our Troops. The families departed around 1 p.m. in a giant bus and were treated to a round trip ride, tickets to the game, hotel reservations and access to the Bill Bates Ultimate Tailgate experience.

"I just want to thank the community of Abilene," Micah Wamala, an airman said. "Everyone has been supportive and we ask them to keep doing what they are doing."
