Arlington, VA (PRWEB) July 04, 2012
In celebration of America’s independence and our service heroes stationed around the globe, the USO and NFL kicked off summer 2012 with their fourth annual USO/NFL Coaches Tour to the Middle East. Having foregone their holiday plans to spend time with troops is former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach and current CBS Sports analyst Bill Cowher; Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier; New York Jets assistant special teams coach/U.S. Army veteran Ben Kotwica; and former NFL coach and current ESPN analyst Eric Mangini. As part of the week-long USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour, the group is in the region talking football, sharing personal accounts of life on the sidelines and posing for photos with troops. **PHOTO LINK BELOW

About the USO
The USO (United Service Organizations) lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families millions of times each year at hundreds of places worldwide. We provide a touch of home through centers at airports and military bases in the U.S. and abroad, top quality entertainment and innovative programs and services. We also provide critical support to those who need us most, including forward-deployed troops, military families, wounded warriors and their families and the families of the fallen.
The USO is a private, nonprofit organization, not a government agency. All of our programs and services are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners and the dedication of our volunteers and staff. In addition to individual donors and corporate sponsors, the USO is supported by President’s Circle Partners: American Airlines, AT&T, Clear Channel, The Coca-Cola Company, jcpenney, Kangaroo Express, Kroger, Lowe’s, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Procter & Gamble, and TriWest Healthcare Alliance and Worldwide Strategic Partners: BAE Systems, The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, and Microsoft Corporation. We are also supported through the United Way and Combined Federal Campaign (CFC-11381). To join us in this patriotic mission, and to learn more about the USO, please visit uso.org.
