NFL Stars Visit Fort Sill Wounded Warriors

FORT SILL Okla_ A country music star and some pro football players, all from Oklahoma and Texas, are using their star power to help wounded warriors.

Former OU and Dallas Cowboy star Roy Williams and former OU and San Francisco 49er star Reggie Smith visited some of these wounded warriors at Fort Sill today. They are members of Pros for Vets, an Oklahoma-based non profit formed by country music star Toby Keith, NFL stars Roy Williams, Tommie Harris and Mark Clayton; Attorney Reggie Whitten and Tulsa businessman Noah Roberts. They want to help the soldiers in any way they can.

US Army Specialist Jared Page said he was thrilled and grateful.

"It means a lot," Page said, "For the other troops that are here, too."

Page's favorite player just happened to be there today NFL great Roy Williams.

"We're very fortunate, very spoiled," Williams said. "We have our troops in the front line fighting for freedom to keep that in perspective."

The biggest need is for free legal services. "Pros for Vets" has teamed up with the Oklahoma Bar Association to spread the word. They have helped over 1,000 soldiers, veterans, and their families with free or reduced legal advice.
