The Saints players were kind enough give back to the troops by posing for photographs and signing autographs.
And after the practice, members of the armed forces were able to participate in an NFL-style practice.
This boot camp event represented the evolution of authentic military appreciation events that USAA and the Saints have created to foster an understanding and appreciation for the local military community, bringing our military closer to a game they love.
A big thank-you to our military personnel, to the Saints for taking part in the event, and USAA for making it happen.
