Four NFL players who excel on the field and in their community are continuing a USO-NFL tradition initiated nearly 50 years ago. These NFL ambassadors are taking part in a week-long USO tour throughout the Middle East to visit U.S. troops at military bases.
New Orleans Saints defensive tackle AKIEM HICKS, Cleveland Browns center ALEX MACK and free agent WILL SVITEK are the players participating in a USO tour this year and will be accompanied by former Atlanta Falcons linebacker BRIAN BANKS, now an employee in the NFL league office officiating department. This trip marks the first USO-NFL tour abroad for Hicks, Svitek and Banks, while Mack took part in a 2012 USO tour.
