He's teaming up with wild Turkey whiskey to celebrate national first responders day. He visited the Houston police and fire departments, the 911 call center. A hospital, all in his home state of Texas. Thanking them all for their service during and after hurricane Harvey and what better way to say thank you with Turkey and bourbon.
