The Pros and G.I. Joes were at it again this past Tuesday.

After missing last December's event at Redskins Park, longsnapper Nick Sundberg made sure he would get a chance to join soldiers and their families with some friendly video game competition.

With the help of USO-Metro and Redskins Salute, Sundberg showed off some of his Madden NFL 15 skills at the USO Warrior and Family Center in Fort Belvoir, Va. It was a chance for a Redskins player to travel to a military base this time and play some active members in person.

Around 30 troops from various branches of service attended and separated into two teams for a double elimination Xbox tournament.

Guests of the event were treated to complimentary food and drink and later, Sundberg announced raffle prize winners, who received a Trent Williams autographed jersey and a signed Jordan Reed mini-helmet.

"You see it with the troops, you see it's a big thing for them," Greg Zinone, founder of the program, said last December at Redskins Park. "Over there in the Wounded Warriors Center, they sit down and see one of these athletes, it's just big. Guys are in the Afghanistan, back and forth, they come down, all of a sudden they're playing these athletes."
