TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals players spent Veterans Day playing a video game competition against Marines from the Wounded Warrior Regiment.

This was the Pro vs. G.I. Joe program's sixth consecutive year and took place in the Cardinals Training Facility.

"It's really special for the kids, to be able to bring my children out here and be able to play and interact with the players," Sgt. Pat Martinez said.

Cardinals players played Call of Duty against troops both at the facility and abroad.

"To be able to come out and just put a smile on their faces just for a little bit of time," Justin Bethel, Arizona Cardinals Cornerback, said. "I think it's very enjoyable for all of us, just to let them know how thankful we are for what they do for us."
