Colorado Springs, Colo. – On Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) met with eight Kansas Cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.

“Days like these serve as a reminder that Kansas produces smart, hard-working and civic-minded individuals who want to give back to their country,” Sen. Moran said.
