J.J. Watt stuns US Veteran with generosity

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has a collection of personally created footwear and apparel through his sponsorship with Reebok. As such, Watt received this tweet from a retired military veteran asking if the specially created Reebok shoes would help with his bad knee and back.

Not only did Watt endorse his shoes as “phenomenal,” he offered to send the veteran a free pair. Watt also kindly thanked the veteran for his service to our country.

How very cool? It is always nice to point out how social media can be used for good purposes versus the negative stuff we so often see. Not surprisingly, the Veteran was extremely touched by Watt’s generosity.

Watt would definitely know a thing or two about body pain. The 28-year-old All Pro is on the mend himself from undergoing knee surgery last October.
