Texans’ J.J. Watt Donates Proceeds From Shoe Line to Honor Veterans Like His Grandfather (VIDEO)

We all know that J.J. Watt is a great American, he continues to show it time and time again with his support for those in need.


Now he’s taking that support to a whole new level to help support veterans like his Grandfather.

On Monday, NFL star J.J. Watt launched a new Reebok “Valor” shoe to honor veterans like his late grandfather – and says he will donate all of his personal proceeds to a veterans’ organization that takes veterans to visit the Nation’s Capital.

Watt, a defensive end for the Houston Texans, made the announcement in a Twitter post:

 “All of my proceeds go to the Honor Flight which takes war veterans on a trip to D.C. to visit the monuments and brings them back home to a proper Welcome Home.”

The tweet includes a video of Watt explaining that the new “Valor 2” shoe line is dedicated to his grandfather, James, and follows last year’s first Valor shoe campaign supporting the Navy SEAL Foundation:

“This is going to be the Valor Two, and what I wanted to do is honor my grandpa. My grandpa, who is no longer with us, he was in the Korean War. I grew up hearing his stories about Pork Chop Hill and all his time over in Korea, so I wanted to honor him.”
