Salute to Service Award


Myles Jack (Linebacker)

This past offseason, Myles Jack embarked on a weeklong tour to South Korea with the USO as an extension of the NFL's Salute to Service. A collaborative effort between the USO and NFL, the tour was aimed to salute and honor those who protect and defend our freedoms abroad. While in South Korea, Jack met and visited with several military units, spending time with service members and their families and in turn was given a unique, in-depth perspective to the daily life of the men and women who defend our freedom tirelessly around the clock.

While at home, Jack has participated in annual NFL Salute to Service events as part of his support for the robust military community in Jacksonville. He has attended Pros vs. GI Joe, during which the Jaguars invite 25 active duty military members from different branches to interact with players through video game challenges. Last year, Jack also went to the Stars and Strikes bowling event held at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, where 200 military members and their families received free bowling time, food and giveaway items. For this year's My Cause My Cleats Initiative, Jack will honor the USO and our military as he wears cleats dedicated to military appreciation for the brave individuals, such as the ones he met in South Korea during the offseason, who fight for and defend our safety. Jack takes great pride in honoring the military, as his great uncle, John Marshall Valrie, proudly served our county during the Vietnam War while on the USS Seattle, enlisting in the Navy at the age of 18.
