"Three military officers came to the Yankee locker room and asked if any of us would like to visit the troops. My hand went straight up, I said, 'I'm in,'" Swisher said while attending a tornado relief benefit in New York City. "I knew Joanna would want to go."
"I come from a military family ... and no matter what your views are, these men and women are out there risking everything for us," he continues. "I realize how fortunate I have been, so I like to give back at every opportunity I can. I don't want to look back on my life when I am old, with my grandchildren around me, and think, 'Man, I wish I'd done that. I've had one shot at this (life).'"
Garcia, who's also looking forward to the trip, adds: "We'll probably make a stop in Europe on our way back."
Someone else the troops might like to meet: Kim Kardashian, currently on her quickie honeymoon in Capri.
