"It's great to be able to see the guys who put their lives on the line to protect us and our country," Mr. Williams said.

"It's great that they can come out here and support us," said Tech. Sgt. Thomas Williamson, a 455th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron weapons load team chief. "We have a lot of NFL fanatics out here."

Sergeant Williamson, a San Francisco 49ers fan from Charleston, S.C., said (the visit) means a lot to everyone and the support from the USO is great because it gives everyone a chance to have up close and personal interaction with individuals they would normally only get to see on television.

Mr. Williams said the experience was eye opening for him.

"Coming here has been a great experience for me," he said. "Just being able to come here and see what the troops have to go through on a daily basis; it has been amazing."

"I appreciate everything that you guys do," Mr. Williams said. "I want to wish all the troops the best, and I hope everyone returns home safe."
