Recap: Military Appreciation Day pres. by GEICO Military

On Saturday, July 29, Redskins Salute and GEICO Military hosted guests for an exclusive VIP Day during Day 3 of Redskins Training Camp. Guests joined Redskins Salute at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center for a day full of football, complimentary hospitality, raffles and autographs from the Redskins players and personnel.

2017 Military Appreciation Day had some new elements to its programming this year. Those who joined Redskins Salute for the VIP portion of the day were treated to a chalk talk by Director of Player Development, Malcolm Blacken. Blacken went into his day to day responsibilities and how he prepares players for what they experience both on and off the field.

Another new feature of Military Appreciation Day was a dedicated area for all active, retired and family members of the military to have front row access to watch both the walkthrough and practices from. This space was full for both sessions and gave attendees a great spot to catch the action from.

Thank you to all who came out to Military Appreciation Day presented by GEICO Military. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
