The USAA and NFL have announced nominees for its annual Salute to Service Award, and Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller is one of 32 nominees.
The Salute to Service Award presented by USAA was created to acknowledge the exceptional efforts by members of the NFL community to honor and support U.S. service members and veterans. Supporters tweet out "votes" for nominees and the USAA is tallying all the hashtags to determine the winner of the award.
Miller is the son of a 20-year military retiree who served two tours in Operation: Iraqi freedom and Operation Desert Storm. Every offseason he visits his alma mater, Killeen Shoemaker High School, which is heavily populated with children with parents in the military. While visiting he provides free health clinics and book bag and school supply giveaways for the children in the military community and communities surrounding that area.
