Rajon Rondo gets it done on & off the court

It is no secret that Boston Celtics' guard Rajon Rondo has emerged into the best player on his team's deep and talented roster.  Whether it is getting the ball inside to Kevin Garnett, creating space for Paul Pierce, spotting up Ray Allen or getting it done on his own, Rondo is most certainly the Celtics' catalyst.

Rondo averaged 21 points,12 assists, 6 rebounds and 2 steals in Boston's 4-2 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.  As the Celtics prepare to face the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals, all eyes will be focused on Rondo, as he attempts to bring his club back to the NBA Finals.

While Rondo's on court greatness is growing by the minute, his off court concern for our nation's true heroes is also quite evident.

Last October, Rondo traveled to Ramstein Air Base and Landstuhl Military Hospital in Germany.  During this trip, Rondo met with soldiers, who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and their families.  Many of these service members were wounded in battle.

Rondo also participated in the opening of a new shopping mall for American troops named Kaiserslautern Military Community Center.

Below is Armed Forces Network video chronicling Rondo's visit.  The energy drink, Red Bull, also contributed to his successful trip in support of the United States Military.
