Yellow Ribbon Social

Attention All Spouses of Deployed or Otherwise Displaced Soldiers


Being alone is tough and surviving a deployment or extended time away from your spouse on the homefront takes strong networks and friendships. That is why the Manhattan Military Relations Committee is sponsoring Yellow Ribbon Socials for all Fort Riley spouses of deployed or otherwise displaced (TDY, NTC JRTC, FTX rotations all qualify) soldiers. Each event is typically from 6 - 9 p.m unless otherwise noted. You can come for the whole time or any part that fits your schedule. We want you to feel welcome and have a good time in a casual atmosphere.

Social Events


Each social typically begins at 6 p.m. and runs until everyone goes home or 9 p.m., whichever comes first, unless otherwise noted. Be sure to link in to our Facebook page to stay up-to-date on every upcoming event. Each event is held at a different Manhattan area restaurant or locale. We try to go to a wide variety of places and things to do to offer different budget options and different tastes.
