Cowboys superfan Dontavious Huffman will never miss a game as long as he has the USO.
At Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, most of the service members are either coming or going to other destinations downrange – meaning few stationed there have many comforts from home, much less cable television. That’s why NFL Game Pass, provided to the USO free of charge by the NFL, is so clutch at places like this, where Sunday night football stretches clear into Monday morning.
“The NFL provides us with NFL Game Pass, where we get to select any of the games that we want to show,” said Camp Arifjan Center Manager Tyler Krantz. “If they can come here on a Sunday night when they’ve been traveling long hours – and they probably have to stay up all night anyway because they have an early flight – so when they can come in and watch their favorite team … it’s a great feeling to see these guys be able to just feel like they are back at home.”
You can send a message of support and thanks directly to service members via the USO’s Campaign to Connect. Your messages will appear on screens at USO locations around the world.
