The Redskins are teaming up with their military appreciation partner Oshkosh Defense to raise funds for TAPS – the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

At the game between the Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Oct. 16, the Redskins and Oshkosh honored Bonnie Carroll, the president and founder of TAPS, along with Patty, Lauren, Hope and Justin Stubenhofer, the widow and surviving children of Army Capt. Mark Stubenhofer, who was killed in Iraq in 2004.

Representing Oshkosh Defense was Jennifer Christensen.

Founded in 1994, TAPS provides assistance for anyone who has suffered the loss of a military loved one, regardless of the relationship to the deceased or the circumstance of the death – TAPS support includes peer based emotional support, case work assistance, crisis intervention and grief and trauma resources.

To help raise funds for TAPS, Oshkosh Defense will donate $2 for every signature collected on the TAPS signature boards located at the "Pro Football and the American Spirit" exhibit on the Club Level of FedExField, up to $100,000 in total.

The Redskins are proud to partner with Oshkosh Defense and salute their unwavering support of our troops and their families.
