HONOLULU -- After six seasons with the Titans, this is my first military tour, and to say I'm excited is an understatement! Armed Forces Entertainment and Pro Tour Productions are hosting five NFL cheerleaders, two NFL mascots and two players on this trip. I started my journey this morning with an early flight from Nashville to Denver.
Titans cheerleader Julia shares photos from Day 1 of her military tour that began in Honolulu.
It was easy to spot the two cheerleaders I was meeting because they radiated the same energy I had through their big smiles! I met Jacqui from the Minnesota Vikings and Tesha from the St. Louis Rams. We were instant friends and even finagled our way to sit together for our seven-hour flight to Honolulu.
We had a great time sharing stories of games, learning the different cultures of our teams, and learning what we do off the field. Our director would be proud because at one point I was in the back of the plane doing squats and calf raises...you have to keep that blood flowing on those long flights.
We landed and met up with the rest of our crew. The other cheerleaders represented are Taylor from the Washington Redskins and Rie from the Atlanta Falcons. Jeremy is Freddie Falcon from Atlanta and had some great stories to share of some of the other tours he's done in the past. Our two players are Terrence Holt and Dre Bly from the Detroit Lions. Both have kiddos so we shared pictures and parenting stories.
After getting home around 10:30 p.m. (2:30 a.m. our time) we went straight to bed because the day starts tomorrow at 3 a.m. Rumor has it we are headed to Kwajalein Atoll, which is a part of the Marshall Islands. I'm really excited take my first official military flight tomorrow morning.
Until tomorrow, Aloha!
