Twitter Pitch: @Jeopardy host Alex Trebek challenges troops on @the_USO tour to Europe!
Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek advances to Germany after spending four days with troops and military families stationed in Italy as part of his 13th USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. Having met with more than 300 U.S. Sailors, Airmen and their families, Trebek will continue his search to find military contestants to participate in Jeopardy!’s “Salute to the Military” week in 2013.
Attributed to Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek:
“I have always been a passionate supporter of our men and women in uniform. There is no better feeling than showing our troops just how much we care…that is why volunteering with the USO is important.”
Attributed to USO President & CEO Sloan Gibson:
"By working with Alex Trebek over the last 25 years, the USO has experienced Alex’s never-ending commitment and support of U.S. troops and their families all over the world. Alex and America’s Favorite Quiz Show® bring our troops a touch of home and a welcome break from their daily routine when deployed overseas. We know our troops will be thrilled at getting a chance to compete in next year's 'Salute to the Military’ Jeopardy competition.”
