Recently, Buccaneers two-time Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph embarked on a military appreciation trip with the USO to spread some Buccaneer cheer to the men and women serving our country. During the tour, the presence of BucNation was felt far and wide, as Joseph encountered numerous Tampa Bay fans currently stationed overseas. Below is one note from a devoted fan who submitted this photo to the team after greeting Joseph during the player's trip in the Middle East:

"Got to meet Davin Joseph in Afghanistan! What a gentle giant! Out of all of the football players you could really tell that he was there for the fans! What an awesome man! THANKS!"
