WHY:

The USO has partnered with the NFL for 53 years during its more than 78-year history to support the military and its mission to connect service members to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.

The partnership began in 1966, when the USO teamed up with the NFL and sent the first group of sports players ever to visit troops. What began in Vietnam and other parts of the Far East has since grown to more than 250 NFL players, coaches and executives, including TERRY BRADSHAW, BILL COWHER, FRANCO HARRIS, LARRY FITZGERALD, LYNN SWANN and J.J. WATT, visiting troops on USO tours in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Kuwait and Somalia. In 2008 Commissioner ROGER GOODELL became the first sports commissioner to visit troops overseas as part of a USO tour when he visited Iraq and Afghanistan.

In addition to overseas morale-building visits, the NFL has supported several different USO projects through Salute to Service, including providing NFL Game Pass to overseas centers, Super Bowl care packages to celebrate the biggest game of the year and flag football kits as part of health and wellness programming. Additionally, NFL donations have allowed USO to expand programs and services around the world.
