Atlanta Falcons players Vic Beasley, Matt Bryant, Grady Jarrett and Paul Worrilow joined head coach Dan Quinn on a weeklong USO/NFL tour to Guam and Hawaii in June. The group visited with service members and military families to celebrate the USO’s 75th anniversary and the organization’s 50-year partnership with the NFL.

In addition to shaking hands, taking pictures and signing autographs, the group learned how to clear anti-personnel mines and how to start a fire in a survival setting. More photos of the group’s USO/NFL tour are available here.
