Holidays like Memorial Day have an extra meaning to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The son of two Army sergeants, Griffin III grew up commonly asking the same question that millions of other American military family members have asked over the past two-plus centuries:
Will my loved ones come home safe to me?
Fortunately, both Jackie and Robert Griffin Jr. did, in fact, come home safe every time, giving their son the inspiration and support to develop into a star athlete at an early age.
So now, the 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year is taking every opportunity he can to both show his appreciation to this country’s military members, as well as give back to the communities that helped shape him into the person he is today.
