COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – As a part of the “USAA Salute to Service Tour,” the NFL’s Lombardi Trophy will be visiting military bases across the country including Fort Benning.

The trophy took a visit to Fort Benning on Thursday, Nov. 5 and the official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL will be bringing memorable NFL experiences directly to military bases, events and installations.

The events will continue for each of the 19 tour stops across the country, encapsulating 27 events over a total of 77 days on the road.

"Today we're giving the soldiers and family members of Fort Benning an opportunity to take a picture with the Lombardi trophy. Along with that they have an opportunity to enter a drawing and essay contest for a pair of tickets for Superbowl 50," Julian Kellman said, USAA Military Affairs Representative. 

The Salute to Service Tour is one of many platforms that USAA and the NFL have created to foster understanding and appreciation for the military community.
