WASHINGTON – This week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (Kan.) invited U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major (Ret.) Richard Young and his fiancé Marcia Cox of Junction City as his guests to the White House to celebrate the Super Bowl LVII champion Kansas City Chiefs. This was the first time the Kansas City Chiefs have ever visited the White House.

“I was honored to have the opportunity to invite Command Sergeant Major (Ret.) Young and his fiancé Marcia as my guests to the White House to celebrate the 2023 Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs,” said Sen. Moran. “CSM Young has served on my Military and Veterans Advisory Board and is a strong advocate for veterans and servicemembers across Kansas and the Fort Riley community.”

“To be at the White House to witness the Kansas City Chiefs receive a President’s congratulation for being Super Bowl Champions was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that Marcia and I will never forget,” said CSM (Ret.) Young. “My observation of those in attendance was that sports is truly nonpolitical.”

CSM (Ret.) Young served in the Army from 1970 to 2001 and was a Command Sergeant Major in Desert Storm with the 82nd Field Artillery in the Third Armored Division. He served as the Fort Riley Post Command Sergeant Major and achieved the most senior rank for enlisted personnel.
