Photos: Academy Salute to Service Surprise

The Houston Texans, Andre Johnson and Academy Sports + Outdoors surprised Melissa Alvidrez with a special gift for the holidays. Melissa Alvidrez is the surviving sibling of Octavio Alvidrez, U.S. Navy Veteran who served for 10 years, including tours in the Iraq War, before passing away suddenly in 2015. She volunteers her time in the TAPS Houston Area Care Group, a local survivor support group that provides emotional support and camaraderie for military survivors. She and her mom will be recognized for all they do to support grieving military families in Houston.
