The tour was a first-of-its-kind for Armed Forces Entertainment. Coaches participated in meet and greets at various bases, as well as actively coached flag football teams made up of servicemen and women. Additionally, the head coaches hosted several symposiums, allowing audience members to ask questions. A television concept for the tour is being developed and the trip was documented by Big Dog productions with broadcast details to be released at a later time.
"College football is an All-American sport - it truly showcases the drive, determination and teamwork that is similar to the U.S. Armed Forces," said Air Force Colonel Edward Shock, Chief of Armed Forces Entertainment. "We are proud to have brought this tour to our military men and women, and my hat goes off to these coaches for spending their downtime with our troops."
