Hundreds of athletes and spectators representing eight military installations across the Mid-Atlantic region converged on Fort Belvoir’s Wells Field House to compete in the 2018 Veterans Day Invitational Basketball tournament, last weekend. 

The annual, double-elimination tournament observes the holiday established to honor those who have served in the nation’s armed forces and gives the region’s most accomplished players a chance to face off in Washington Area Military Athletic Conference-level competition before the season kicks off in December. Military District of Washington-National Capital Region sponsored the tournament. 

Belvoir fielded its main WAMAC team—the Eagles men’s squad led by veteran WAMAC Head Coach Herb Marshall.
