David Beckham Boosts British Troop Morale

David Beckham autographs a few soccer balls, t-shirts and posters right before he leaves Afghanistan following a morale-boosting visit to British troops on Sunday (May 23).

During his trip, the 35-year-old soccer star wore body armor, carried a Kevlar helmet, and was escorted by Camp Bastion’s Regimental Sergeant Major.

“I have nothing but admiration for these young men and women, and it makes me very proud to be British,” David said in a statement released by BFBS. “I’ve wanted to visit Afghanistan for a long time, and I hope that in some small way it helps remind everyone at home what an amazing job they are doing out here in very difficult conditions. I feel very humble.”
