Drew Brees join the USAA Salute to Service Football Boot Camp at the Saints' practice facility Thursday. Local military members were invited to watch the Saints practice, then to participate in a competition with drills based on the Football scouting combine. Brees and Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi (who served in the Air Force) both addressed the military members and thanked them for their service before putting them to work on the field.

Wearing the proper uniform of the day, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees surveyed his target streaking across the field.  "Hey, I got you buddy!" Brees said, before slinging an on-target strike to his receiver. "Bam!"  The receiver, in this moment, was a service member from the New Orleans Naval Joint Air Station, who was one of a few dozen local members of the armed forces who participated in USAA's "Salute to Service Football Boot Camp."

The service members, most of whom were Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, competed in an Football Combine-style workout. In teams, they ran the 40-yard dash, tested their vertical leap and agility in the three-cone shuttle and threw passes as far as they could. Drew Brees Jersey .
