Roberts is no stranger to the armed services himself -- he was raised in a military family and attended The Citadel.

"Both my parents were in the Army. It was an easy avenue for me to get into, especially coming from The Citadel," Roberts said, per CBS DC. "It doesn't matter if they're military or not, but being part of that family and understanding what some of these kids have to go through, with moving and losing parents, it's a blessing to be able to work with them."
