Mangini visits Persian Gulf troops

NFL analyst Eric Mangini had the opportunity to do something completely different this Fourth of July.

Instead of celebrating Independence Day at a family barbecue like many Americans, he traveled halfway around the world as part of the NFL USO Coaches Tour to the Persian Gulf, visiting troops and observing the holiday with them overseas.

Mangini, who joins Jon Gruden, Merril Hoge and Matt Millen among ESPN’s NFL USO Tour veterans, took a few minutes during his trip to talk to Front Row about the experience.
