Redskins Say Thank You To Veterans

Lt. J.G. Elizabeth Auckland makes sure that her base in Spain knows who she’s supporting — the Washington Redskins.

Lt. J.G. Auckland told The Redskins Blog that whether its waking up early in the morning or staying up late into the night, she’s proudly rooting on her Redskins halfway across the world.

“I’ve been proudly serving our great nation for the past 23 years and still going,” she said. “I am currently stationed in Spain and catch every game thanks to NFL Game Pass. I’ve been a fan since birth….it’s a family thing going back to my grandfather – also a veteran of the Navy.

“I’ve stayed up late to catch the 4 p.m. Sunday games and gotten up early to catch the primetime games (I’m six hours ahead here in Spain).”

Lt. J.G. Auckland said that every Friday she wears some sort of Redskins gear at work and “every Monday I go to work hoarse from yelling at the TV!”

“In all my years I’ve never been stationed close to FedExField to watch my beloved ‘Skins, but have managed to catch them twice at away games: once when stationed in Key West and drove up to watch them play the Dolphins and once when stationed in Bremerton and they played the Seahawks.  I love the Redskins and support them win or lose.”

She also had one final message before Sunday’s game.

“Here’s to a win against the Bucs and every remaining game!!  Hail to the Redskins!!”
