VINCENT JACKSON AND DAVIN JOSEPH TEAM UP TO DISCUSS

USO TOURS IN BUCCANEERS.COM VIDEO SERIES

 

This spring, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pro Bowlers Vincent Jackson and Davin Joseph were invited to take part in unique USO tours that brought a taste of home to U.S. troops stationed overseas. Jackson's tour, which was led by the country's second-highest ranked military officer - Admiral James A. Winnefeld, Jr. - included NFL players Peyton Manning and Austin Collie, retired MLB pitcher Curt Schilling, NFL Cheerleaders, and a pair of former American Idol contestants. The morale-building trip, which took place in late February, stopped in six countries in Europe and the Middle East, as well as one ship at sea, the USS Stennis.

In mid-March, Joseph traveled overseas with a star-studded crew of NFL players including Champ Bailey, D'Qwell Jackson, Von Miller, Steve Smith, and J.J. Watt to carry on the NFL's tradition of bringing support and encouragement to U.S. troops serving abroad. Along with detailing their individual trips for Buccaneers.com, Jackson and Joseph recently joined forces for an exclusive three-part video series that provides Buccaneers fans with an extensive look at their experiences abroad.
