INDIANAPOLIS – The offseason brings opportunities of all kinds to players and coaches across the NFL.
For three Colts, they are about to embark on a trip of a lifetime.
Andrew Luck, Dwayne Allen and Chuck Pagano will soon join Admiral James Winnefeld, Jr. for his final USO Tour as Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The eight-day tour will span seven countries and is "designed to be a moment-filled trip complete with hi-energy shows and memorable base visits."
Joining the Colts trio on the trip will be Steelers guard David DeCastro (a Stanford product), American Idol alumni Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young, actor Dennis Haysbert, Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev, recording artist Phillip Phillips and movie/television personality Jason "Wee Man" Acuna.
"America's military – men and women who represent the best of our communities – is serving in all corners of globe to protect our great nation and our freedom," Admiral Winnefeld, Jr. said.
"As we embark on this eight-day, seven-country USO tour, our group of athletes and entertainers will express their personal gratitude to those serving by sharing their talents. This tour is particularly significant to Mary and me, as this is our last USO tour in this position as the Vice Chairman. We look forward to visiting America's sons and daughters who keep our nation safe and showing them that they will always have the support of those they serve."
