USAA Salute to Service Moment Week 3 vs. LAR

During the week five match-up against the Los Angeles Rams, the Washington Football Team presented the USAA Salute to Service Moment honoring Petty Officer Mario Chen and Petty Officer Stephanie O'Sullivan representing the United States Guard on the renowned Second Screen Digital Experience!
