It was a great gesture from Coach Cal and a pair of Cats today.
UK spent a little face-time with troops overseas via Skype.
Cal, Alex poythress and Julius Randle all chatted during a 30 minute window with soldiers based in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and Guantanamo Bay.
It was a unique opportunity to talk hoops but also about decision making and life choices.
And for the third year in a row, it was without a doubt a huge success.
Hear Cal's thank you to the troops in the video.
