Washington Redskins help kids in Salute to Service Challenge

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has shown how he enjoys interacting with military kids because of his background growing up as the son of two U.S. Army sergeants.

Griffin joined Redskins teammates Tuesday in the NFL Play 60 Salute to Service Challenge, reported.

The lifestyle event took place at Joint Base Andrews with the Department of Defense, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines with the help of USAA and the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association.

The players led the kids through agility drills and football workouts. The military community was thankful for the Redskins' participation.

Redskins fullback Darrel Young can understand how some of the kids grow up. His brother is in the military and Young sees it's not always easy for his nephew and niece.
