Redskins Salute Members Take In Practice, Interact With Players

Posted Jun 8, 2015

Redskins Salute members, including all five branches of the military, along with their families, had the opportunity to attend team practice on Monday and collect autographs from players.

Redskins Salute members from all five branches of the military – Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard – spent a few hours with family and friends at Redskins Park on Monday during the start of the third week of OTAs.

Armed with footballs, pennants, jerseys, hats and other memorabilia, those that attended stood and watched the entire Redskins practice by the sideline before filing into line to receive autographs and pose for photos.

And yes, Redskins Salute, who partnered with USO Metro, made sure everyone had the opportunity to speak with players, who greeted them after practice by swapping stories, handshakes and selfies, as many shuffled along to share their thanks. 

Did I mention they received lots of autographs?

Those watching practice were also given a barbecue lunch buffet and a place to cool down beneath a tent to avoid the heat before practice finished.

More than 150 members in total participated in the event, including current service members and some veterans as well, encompassing three generations of fans. 

Here were some more moments from Monday’s event.
