What a year!

Merging Vets + Players sparked a unique program recreating a bond of brotherhood and comraderie that is so crucial to many veterans adjusting to life after military service. FOX Sports was inspired to tell the story of the MVP team as they lift our nation's heroes and provide a path of hope and resilience.
