When U.S. Sailors and Marines stepped onto Pier 9 in Brooklyn as their ships docked for Fleet Week, they met football star Mark Sanchez.We were lucky to be there and can share a few moments of the Jets quarterback doing his part to boost morale.
He spent the afternoon hanging out with troops, and was thrilled to be in their company. The pier was specially set up by the troop-focused charity the USO (United Services organisation) and sponsored by Pepsi in support of active duty military personnel.
“Having a gr8 day out here at Valor Fleet Week w/ the US Navy, USO & @pepsimax,” he tweeted, along with a photo snapped of himself with Sailors dressed in crisp white uniforms.
