Redskins-49ers Is 'Salute To Service' Game

Posted Nov 19, 2013

The Washington Redskins and USAA will continue their long history of honoring our nation’s veterans and active duty military through the team’s annual “Salute to Service” game on Monday, Nov. 25.

The Washington Redskins and USAA will continue their long history of honoring our nation’s veterans and active duty military through the team’s annual “Salute to Service” game on Monday, Nov. 25.

Kickoff for the Monday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers is set for 8:40 p.m.

The Redskins and USAA, the presenting sponsor and Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the Washington Redskins, are joining forces to honor local military by inviting more than 50 guests from local military units to the game.

In addition, Gen. Larry Spencer, Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force, will serve as one of the game’s honorary captains.

Prior to kickoff, the Redskins will present a special military challenge coin, designed and created by USAA, for use in the official coin toss.

The long-standing tradition among military members of carrying such coins symbolizes unit identity and collective brotherhood, and the coins are often traded or collected among unit members.

USAA’s design of the military challenge coin for the Salute to Service game pays homage to that revered tradition.

The Redskins will also display Salute to Service banners on the sidelines honoring all branches of the United States Armed Forces, as well as honoring members of the military on-field and on the video boards as part of the Redskins’ season-long military appreciation efforts.

In addition to the tributes detailed above, the following Salute to Service elements, as well as pregame and in-game ceremonies, are planned to recognize veterans and current members of America’s Armed Forces:

  • Salute to Service goal post wraps, pylons with camouflage ribbon decals and wall banners in the back of the end zones.
  • Camouflage ribbon lapel pins, towels, players’ gloves, captains’ patches and helmet decals
  • Footballs featuring camouflage ribbons.
  • Military guests will form the fan tunnel for player introductions, as well as participate in the “living flag” ritual.
  • Master Sgt. Caleb Green of the U.S. Army Band will sing the national anthem.

Redskins fans can show their appreciation to veterans and service members with a digital salute on behalf of their favorite team by visiting www.millionfansalute.com.

The NFL cities with the most salutes will earn rewards from USAA for their local military community.

The Washington Redskins Military Appreciation Game is part of the NFL’s “Salute to Service” campaign.
