In honor of the upcoming Veteran’s Day celebrations, Redskins fullback Darrel Young spent his Tuesady at the Westin Hotel at Tysons Corner for the “Salute Our Heroes” luncheon.”
Young joined former Redskin Rick “Doc” Walker at the event, which was hosted for military members and their families.
Events with veterans, or current military personnel, have special importance for Young, because his brother is in the military.
