was part of a eight-day tour (7 countries) with Admiral James Winnefeld Jr. on his final USO Tour as vice chairman of the Joints' Chiefs of Staff.

Allen was joined by Andrew Luck, David Decastro, Colts' coach Chuck Pagano, actor Dennis Haysbert, Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna and others as they gave thanks to U.S. troops that serve our country.

Some of their stops included visiting Walter Reed Medical Center and being on board the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier.

Had the pleasure of hopping aboard the USS Carl Vinson CVN-70 today to serve some of the men and women of our armed forces. The time spent today only scratches the surface of my appreciation for their service to our great country! #nopunintended #USO #ProudAmerican #SDG

This pic was taken in a black hawk heading to Kabul, Afganistan. Though I'm smiling, I am insanely terrified inside. So thankful for all those who have served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces. You soldiers are the real heroes! #Brodyisalive #whereisCarrieMathison #thisisnotHomeland #TBT #offseasonadventures #SDG

After a stare down with the North Korean military personnel, I think Coach Pagano is ready to get back to football! #neverbackdown #freeagencyprepping #DMZ
