Washington Salute Set To Kick Off Touching Base Tour Presented By GEICO Military


Washington Salute is kicking off the 2020 Touching Base Tour, presented by GEICO Military alongside Buffalo Wild Wings, USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore and USO Hampton Roads and Central Virginia on Oct. 5. The Washington Salute team will travel to 15 military installations throughout Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., connecting with 1,500 service members to thank them for their service throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The tour will feature three stops every week leading up to the Washington Football Team's Salute to Service game on Nov. 8 against the New York Giants.

The Washington Salute team will hand out 100 appreciation packages at each installation featuring Buffalo Wild Wings gift cards, Washington Football Team virus-protection face masks, 2020 Washington Football Team yearbooks, First Ladies of Football 2020 Programs and much more! Washington Football Team personalities will be virtually interviewing service members throughout the tour, and our First Ladies of Football will challenge service members to workout competitions to see if they're fit to be Washington Football Cheerleaders!

We encourage all active-duty Washington Football fans to check in with their local USO locations for information on Touching Base Tour events being hosted at local installations near you! All Washington Salute members are welcome to stay up-to-date on all Tour check-ins via Washington Salute Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) or the 2020 Touching Base Tour Home Page.
