Pictures from EWU ROTC’s Cannon Crew Support to University’s Home Opening Football Game

The EWU football team is currently 2-0 and on the road to play Washington State today in Pullman.  Hopefully the Eags can pull off another upset on the road against WSU like they did two years ago.  However, what that means is that there is another week of no EWU ROTC Cannon Crew support to the team.  The Cannon Crew will be in action though next week when EWU plays Cal Poly at home on Sept. 22nd.  Until then here are a few pictures to enjoy of Cannon Crew action in support of EWU’s home opening 58-13 victory over Central Washington back on Sept 1st.

EWU ROTC’s historic M1A1 Pack Howitzer is ready for action. The cannon first entered service during World War II with the 10th Mountain Division. The cannon saw action against enemy force during division operations in Italy.

Cadet Tyler Bergman of Spokane Valley, WA had the honor of firing the first shot from the ROTC program’s historic 75mm howitzer.


The EWU ROTC’s cannon site above Roos Field was a popular location at Eastern Washington University’s home opening football game. One of the notable campus figures that stopped by was the university mascot “Swoop” who took a picture with the EWU ROTC Color Guard and Cannon Crew teams.
