Redskins & USAA To Recognize Current And Former Military For Special Salute To Service Game

Posted Dec 3, 2015

The Washington Redskins and USAA will recognize our veterans and military at Monday night's annual Salute To Service game.

The Washington Redskins and USAA will recognize our veterans and military at Monday night's annual Salute To Service game.

The Redskins were one of three teams hosting a home game on Dec. 7, 1941 – the day that the Pearl Harbor attacks occurred. Seventy-four years later, the Washington Redskins and USAA are honored to present a special Salute to Service game on Pearl Harbor Day in tribute to all current and former military. Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

In remembrance of the anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the Redskins and USAA, Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the Washington Redskins, are joining forces to honor World War II veterans throughout the game weekend.

In conjunction with Honor Flight DFW, the Redskins and USAA will host 12 WWII veterans in Washington, D.C., at remembrance events that include a visit to Arlington National Cemetery as well as participation in the Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Ceremony at the National World War II Memorial held on Monday, Dec. 7. Redskins President Bruce Allen will be in attendance, supporting all World War II veterans and honoring our nation’s fallen heroes. During Monday’s Salute to Service game, the World War II veterans will be recognized on-field during the first quarter.

USAA will also honor current and former military throughout the game with several military appreciation-focused activities, including:

Challenge Coin: Prior to kickoff, the Redskins will present a special military challenge coin, created by USAA, for use in the official coin toss. In what has become a long-standing military tradition, challenge coins are given to reward excellence, boost morale, or to recognize a fellow service member.

Salute to Service Moment: USAA and the Redskins will recognize two current service members on-field during the first quarter, as well as show gratitude for all current and former military in attendance with a “stand and be honored” moment

Special Gift to current and former military: the first 500 current and former military to visit USAA on the concourse outside of Section 135 receive a free gift*.

* While supplies last. Limit one per person. Proof of military service may be required.
