不过,有一两件事似乎已躲过了后卫老将多年来:有机会亲自表达感谢他的美国谁是部队派驻海外。

That will all change Sunday when Quarles embarks on an NFL-USO-sponsored overseas venture in which he'll visit U.S. troops at military bases throughout the Persian Gulf. The USO (United Service Organizations) is a private, nonprofit organization that provides morale-boosting and recreational services to members of the U.S. military worldwide.

Joined by three other NFL players – 在lanta tight end Alge Crumpler, Kansas City guard Will Shields and New England tight end Benjamin Watson – Quarles will continue a more than 40-year-old tradition of NFL 玩ers visiting U.S. troops stationed overseas to thank them for all that they do.

"It's just showing how much we appreciate what they do for us and just to let them know how valued they are as a member of our society," Quarles said. "We wouldn't enjoy the freedoms that we do if they weren't doing what they do for us. This is just to show them that we are appreciative of that."

It's a longstanding and worthy tradition between the NFL and USO that began way back in 1966. That was the year Willie Davis, Frank Gifford, Sam Huff and Johnny Unitas – all standouts at the time and today NFL Hall-of-Fame members – made the trip to Vietnam as part of the first NFL-USO goodwill effort.

“他们已经有众多玩家的走了过来,不时来参观我们的军队何地都被”夸尔斯说。 “我很高兴成为参与者之一,并有机会走过去和享受的体验。

“长大后,我一直对军队的赞赏。我明白,他们怎么也得组织以及他们如何必须了解不同的文化和不同的环境中,他们进去的。”
