Attributed Troy Vincent:
“The security of our nation depends on the dedicated service of our men and women in the armed forces. This visit allowed me to see them face to face, look into their eyes, and gave me the opportunity to express my love and gratitude for their work. The commitment, bravery, and dedication they display every day protects lives, and I am honored to be able to say ‘thank you’ in person on behalf of all of us at the NFL.”
