Jones brothers honor Fort Bliss soldiers

News

Aaron and Alvin Jones have excelled at every level of football they have even played. They did it at Burges High School, they did it at UTEP, and now they are doing it in the NFL. Through all of their success of the football field, they have never forgotten about home base.

The Jones brother are back in El Paso this week and they made a stop to Fort Bliss where they presented Major General Patrick Matlock with signed memorabilia that will be displayed at the military base. The Jones family is a military family and this was a homecoming of sorts for the two NFL stars.

“Fort Bliss is home for me,” said Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones. “It’s just an honor to come back home and see all of the soldiers who protect us.”

“It just makes you feel good to see the troops because without them, none of this is possible,” said Baltimore Ravens linebacker Alvin Jones. “It’s an amazing feeling.”

The Jones brothers plan to enjoy the offseason until NFL minicamps commence in May.
