For the past 50 years, the NFL has supported the USO in a variety of ways, from NFL player and coach tours visiting service members around the world to helping to fund new facilities such as the USO Pat Tillman Center in Afghanistan. Through the Salute to Service initiative, the NFL has recently made a new $5 million commitment to support new USO programming, center expansion and renovations at more than 180 USO locations worldwide. This commitment will allow the USO to reach more service members and military families ensuring they stay connected to the grateful nation they chose to defend.
