Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh kicked off the offseason with a trip back to his roots, touring the United States military bases in Kuwait.
Brought up in an Army family (with his wife Alessia coming from an Air Force family), McIntosh has always been supportive of our nation’s military. Several weeks ago, he was offered an opportunity to tour Kuwait with fellow NFL players James Laurinaitis (Rams LB), Sam Bradford (Rams QB), and Seneca Wallace (Browns QB), as well as two Chiefs cheerleaders.
On this particular trip to visit deployed troops, he offered to take Redskins Nation with him, shooting footage and photos on his iPhone. This is a glimpse of Kuwait with your tour guide and cameraman, Rocky McIntosh:

Intensity. Passion. Commitment.
These are a few of the qualities that push Redskins fullback Darrel Young to new heights on the football field. Indeed, these are things that every athlete needs in order to make it in pro sports, although every player draws it from a different place.
For Young, that source has always been in his brother David, a sergeant first class in the US Army. David has been deployed in the Middle East for much of Darrel’s career, but remains close with his brother, providing him with guidance and support, even from a world away.
In an effort to repay the favor, Darrel has teamed up with the Bills’ Drayton Florence and the Buccaneers’ James Lee as part of the “NFL Players Super Bowl Tour.” Since departing the United States on Feb. 1, the trio has visited troops stationed in Greenland, El Salvador and Honduras.
