Pierre Garçon is visiting U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East for a weeklong morale-building tour coordinated by the NFL and USO.

Of course part of his time with service members included working on his hands.

“Being a part of this USO tour has been a very memorable experience for me, seeing everything the men and women in uniform do for us back home,” Garçon said,
