HOUSTON, TX – Today, the Texans are all about our military service men and women.
150 members of the armed forces from Wounded Warrior Project, USO and the Lone Star Veteran Association spent the day at Reliant Stadium with the Texans.
“These people just perform such great service to our country, and we don’t give them enough recognition, so this is the way that we can say thank you and let them know we do appreciate what they’re doing,” according to Texans owner Bob McNair.
Lunch provided by HEB, Cooked by the Texans Brew Team AND Battle Red Wagon tailgating team, and served up by players and coaches wives all to show support for those who serve our country.
MSGT. Robert Foster of the U.S. Army appreciates the recognition, “Every Sunday I watch JJ Watt. Every time he does a big play he salutes the soldiers and that mean a lot to not only myself but to the soldiers as well.
Petty Officer Tyson St.John, of the U.S. Coast Guard said, “I come here and Texas is such a huge military state, I’ve never felt this much love and community service from them, for us, for what we do.”
And off to practice, where the men and women in uniform got to mingle with Texan players and staff.
Lt. Charles Whitsel of the US Coast Guard said, “It’s great, we really appreciate the Texans having us out and HEB sponsored as well. It’s really kind of the local community to show the support to the military.”
Doesn’t matter how bad the Texans season is going, today was all about giving back to those who serve, to let them know, Houston cares!
