A very happy Memorial Day to those out in Redskins Nation.
Memorial Day is a day to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country, and that’s exactly what we plan on doing.
Here’s a video produced by a huge Redskins fan, Bridget Dowd, who says the montage depicts the Redskins “showing their love and support for those who who keep this country safe. Thank you to those who have served and the men, women and families of those who are currently serving. Take a moment to remember and honor their sacrifices and enjoy the freedoms that they fought for!”
Thank you, Bridget, for this awesome video — and thank you, especially, to those who have given their lives to protect our freedoms.

ABOUT THE REDSKINS: Headquartered at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, and owned by Daniel Snyder, the historic Washington Redskins Football Club has won five World Championship titles including the 1937 and 1942 National Football League Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with seven others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snydersince 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
