Michael Strahan

Michael Strahan (NFL Legend)

Michael Strahan has long been a supporter of the military and continues to do so today. As a child growing up in a military family, the Strahan's moved to Germany when he was nine years old in support of his father's United States Army career, and Michael attended Mannheim American High School, a United States Department of Defense Dependent High School. After a successful college and professional football career, Michael continued his support of the military by visiting wounded service members at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Additionally, he worked with the USO and donates clothes from his clothing line, to veterans in need. Today, Michael proudly works with a military nonprofit called Merging Vets and Players, which takes retired veteran military members and connects them with retired athletes to help with their transitions. As a self-proclaimed "Army Brat", Michael has truly utilized his experience and platform to make a difference within the military community, and we are grateful for his commitment to those who courageously served and are serving our country.
