Swisher and wife visit the troops

@SportsBata ..nuff said

NY Yankees Nick Swisher and his wife, ABC’s “Better Without You” actress JoAnna Garcia promised to visit the troops in Afghanistan (for their honeymoon) back in August, when three officers approached him in the locker room during a Unite for Tornado Relief event in New York. They postponed their honeymoon until the recent Thanksgiving weekend, fulfilled their promise and visited the troops in Germany and Afghanistan. Check out Swisher’s tweets from Friday!


My life has been changed by the amazing troops I met in Germany & Afghanistan. Thank you for your sacrifice & for keeping us safe.


Just crossing over the Afghanistan border.  Speeding the last week visiting our troops has been remarkable. I was among true heroes…

The sacrifice our soldiers & their families make is something we should never take 4 granted. God bless all of u @ home & abroad!
