On this Veteran’s Day, Buccaneers fans, we talk about the Salute to Service award.
The award is given by the NFL and the USAA to one player in the league that shows strong commitment to honoring the military community. Last year, one of our own the award, Vincent Jackson.
This year’s nominees are out, and the Bucs’ nominee is none other than Clinton McDonald.
Many members of McDonald‘s family have served our nation, going back to his grandfather serving in the Korean War all the way through his brother who is an active member of the Air Force.
“McDonald served as honorary guest speaker at the Bucs second annual General H. Norman Schwarzkopf Military Family of the Year Awards and has honored wounded warriors at the 2016 Invictus Games, held in Orlando. McDonald also makes sure to spend extra time with military members at Bucs team events. To read more about McDonald’s nomination, please visit NFL.com/salute.”
The winner will be announced at the NFL awards show, this year taking place in Houston, televised on FOX the night before the Super Bowl.
For anyone interested, here is the list of the nominees:
