New England Revolution players climbed aboard the USS Constitution in the Charlestown Navy Yard last week to show the sailors some of the their best soccer moves.

The team’s midfielder Chris Tierney and defenseman A.J. Soares took a tour of the ship and demonstrated various soccer skills and kicks to the sailors on board to promote the team’s upcoming “Salute to Heroes.”

The Revolution plan to honor and entertain members of the military, veterans and their families with a slew of special events at their game against the Houston Dynamo at Gillette Stadium Saturday May 19, which is also Armed Forces Day.

In addition the the game, the event will also feature pull-up bars for competitions among fans, a dog tag machine, performances by Digger Dawg and The Liberty Band, U.S. Army and Marine Corps enlistment ceremonies, and a halftime competition between the Army and Marine Corps.

The team’s charitable foundation worked with the USO to distribute 3,500 tickets to service members across New England.
