Award winner will be named during 2nd Annual NFL Honors event on February 2
NEW YORK –The NFL and USAA, the League’s Official Military Appreciation Sponsor, announced the two finalists for the 2012 Salute to Service Award today. USAA is a leading provider of insurance and other services to members of the U.S. military and their families.
Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and Tampa Bay Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik were selected for their exceptional efforts to honor and support members of the military community.
The Salute to Service Award will be presented to one of the finalists at the “2nd Annual NFL Honors” – a two-hour primetime awards special to air nationally on Saturday, February 2, 9-11 p.m. (ET) on CBS. In addition, a $25,000 contribution will be made by USAA in the winner’s honor to the aid societies representing all five military branches.
“There are many men and women across the NFL who actively support the military and their families,” said Steve Speakes, executive vice president of USAA’s external affairs and a retired Army lieutenant general. “The Salute to Service Award is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on at least a few of those stories so that we may inspire others to do the same.”
