Redskins Training Camp: a touchdown with the troops

By Airman 1st Class Anthony Nin Leclerec 633rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The United Services Automobile Association hosted a ‘Salute to Service’ event August 7, 2018, during the Washington Redskins Training Camp at Bon Secours Training Center in Richmond, Virginia.

Service members were split into five-person teams and competed in five events, including team ball catching, the gauntlet, 40-yard dash, L-drill and the vertical leap.

Afterwards, service members had free lunch and refreshments and were able to view the Redskins practice. When the practice was over, players posed for selfies and signed shirts, hats, footballs and service members’ combat boots.
