Kathryn Edwards’ Husband Donnie Edwards Receives 2019 Salute To Service Award!

Donnie Edwards, the husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Kathryn Edwards receives 2019 Salute to Service award! The NFL and USAA, an Official NFL Salute to Service Partner, named Los Angeles Chargers legend Donnie Edwards as the recipient of the 2019 Salute to Service Award presented by USAA.

The award was created to acknowledge the exceptional efforts by members of the NFL community to honor and support members of the military community.

Edwards will be recognized at NFL Honors, a two-hour primetime awards special to air nationally on Feb. 1, the eve of Super Bowl LIV, at 8 p.m. (ET and PT) on FOX.
NFL Honors will be taped earlier that evening at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. USAA, a leading provider of insurance and other services to U.S. military members, veterans and their families, will contribute $25,000 in Edwards' honor to the official aid societies representing all five military branches.

The NFL will match USAA's donation of $25,000, which will be donated to the Edwards' military charity of choice. “Inspired by his grandfather's service in WWII, Donnie has exhibited true appreciation for the sacrifices of WWII veterans and those currently serving overseas," said Vice Admiral (Ret.) John Bird, USAA Senior Vice President of Military Affairs, according to NFL.com. "In honor of his very admirable work with those in the greatest generation, USAA is proud to honor Donnie Edwards as the recipient of this year's 'Salute to Service Award presented by USAA.'"
