KAPOLEI, Hawaii-NFL Pro Bowl 2012 players signed autographs for Soldiers Jan. 25, at Kapolei High School where the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference practiced before the Pro Bowl game on Sunday.
"I am so excited that Drew Brees signed both of my jerseys, this is one of the best days of my life. I am from New Orleans so this is a big deal," said 1st Lt. Chianti Kaufman-Ivory, a native of New Orleans, La. assigned to the Hawaii Army National Guard at Barbers Point, Hawaii.
"I came out to get pictures and autographs for my son and I got them," said Sgt. 1st. Class Lachell R. Johnson, a water treatment NCO assigned to the Special Troops Battalion, 8th Theater Sustainment Command on Fort Shafter, Hawaii. "I've been out here forever, but it was well worth the wait, I've had to chance to mingle and socialize with everyone else trying to get autographs too. My son is going to be super excited."
