From U.S. Army veteran Noah Galloway to the website’s twitter page last night:

“It’s a great feeling when Roethlisberger introduces himself to you and thanks you for your service. Great guy! It was incredible to have him come up to me…I really appreciated it.”

Noah had just completed the White Sands Missile Range 23rd Annual Bataan Memorial Death March in New Mexico, and was on his way home to Alabama when he met Ben at the airport. Noah and his team, TEAM X-T.R.E.M.E completed the 26.2 mile march wearing 47lb packs and gas masks.

If you have a twitter account, you can see Noah’s incredible photos from the event either on the website’s page (@_BigBen7) or on Noah’s page (@_Noah_Galloway).
