With Arizona hosting this year's Pro Bowl, the players selected to play in this year's exhibition also got a bit of a treat. Thursday's practice was held at Luke Air Force Base and then the players attended "Airman for a Day" sponsored by USAA, the Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL, at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, AZ. Airman for a Day was part of the NFL Community Blitz during Pro Bowl week.
Players were able to experience:
- Being up close and personal with an F-16
- An F-16 flight simulator
- Meet and greet with military working dogs (K-9 bomb/attack dogs)
- Participation in Skype calls with military members overseas, with their families stateside at Luke AFB
Arizona Cardinals defensive end and Pro Bowler Calais Campbell was grateful for the opportunity.
Not only was it a treat for the players, but certainly it was for the servicemen as well.
Check out the images provided by USAA. You can see it was memorable for all involved.
