The tour begins Wednesday and runs through April 17. The tour is part of the USO Celebrity Entertainment Program, aimed at lifting spirits of troops during their deployment.
In a release issued by Tennessee, Fulmer said ''if Coach Slocum and I can give our brave men and women a little by talking football, a special thank you from home or a `Go Vols' or `Gig `em, Aggies,' I am up for it.''
Fulmer coached Tennessee to a 1998 national championship and went 152-52-1 before getting forced out in 2008. Slocum was 123-47-2 at Texas A&M from 1989-2002. Both entered the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012.
