(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)- To celebrate the end of training camp, the Kansas City Chiefs once again welcomed several members of the military to practice. 

After practice, members of the U.S. Army, Coast Guard, Navy, Marines, and Air Force went down on the field to interact with the Chiefs. 

"It's a great honor getting to be able to come out here for them to take the time out of their day to show support and give us the opportunity to meet and greet, get some signatures and photos," United States Marine Corps serviceman Aaron Chadwick said. 

The Chiefs took pictures and signed autographs while hosting the members of the military. 

"We've always supported those people and everything that they scaraficed for us," Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said. "To have them out here is always great to show the support they show for us. It's something that you really appreciate everything they do."

The weekend will start to warm back up into the 50's and we should see more sunshine across the area. Much colder air is in the forecast for next week with highs only in the upper 20's and lower 30's.
