Veterans and former athletes come together through ‘MVP’ program

Veterans Voices

Each week at a gym in West Hollywood, veterans and former athletes come together to train and talk – this is MVP.

“We’re taking former combat vets [and] we’re merging them together with former pro athletes to give them a new team for when the transition comes,” FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer says.

FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer is one of MVP’s founders. He realized that those adjusting to life after service, or, life after sports, had a lot more in common than they may have realized.

Each session begins with thirty minutes of training, followed by “the huddle.”

The end goal? Making sure each of them know they’re not going through this alone.
