The Arizona Cardinals are partnering up with the USAA for a great cause.

The team will host “USAA’s Salute to Service NFL Boot Camp” for 50 active-duty service members from Luke Air Force Base and the Arizona Army National Guard at University of Phoenix Stadium Thursday, Aug. 2 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The group will get a firsthand experience of what an NFL player goes through as they make the jump from college to the league.

Just don’t be surprised if they turn some heads.

Each person will take part in football drills similar to the ones coaches use for player evaluations.

But that’s not all.

Military members will get to enjoy the rest of the Cardinals practice in luxury thanks to the VIP hospitality area.

Following practice, members of the team will make their way over to visit and sign autographs with the group.
