My Story: Saluting the SEALs – HoustonTexans.com

Some people look to NFL players as heroes, but for JJ Watt, the real heroes are the individuals who risk their lives every day to serve our country. In the most recent “My Story” video profiling JJ’s trip with the NFL-USO tour to Afghanistan, Watt talks about what it was like going inside a Chinook helicopter, knowing that in 2011, one of them was shot down, causing 22 SEALs to lose their lives in the process. You can watch it here.

My Story: Up Close With Machinery on the USO tour – HoustonTexans.com

With some many stories coming back from the war in Afghanistan, sometimes it’s easy to forget that each and every soldier has a name, and their own personal story.  For JJ Watt, having the chance to take a ride in the very same helicopters that the military uses on its missions really made the experience hit home. And yes, even JJ was surprised there was enough room in some of them for all 6’5″ of him! Watch him talk about it here.
