Redskins Cheerleaders Release Their 2009-10 Swimsuit Calendar

Back in the spring the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders traveled to Marco Island Marriott in Florida to shoot their 12th annual swimsuit calendar. On July 30th the Cheerleaders held their calendar release party at the Public Bar in DC.

I was unable to attend, but loyal reader of the blog Ron was there and he did a great job of taking photos and we really appreciate that he’s sharing them with us.

Redskins Cheerleader Dawn Visits USS Harry S Truman

Earlier Sasha posted an article from the Washington Examiner written by former Redskins Cheerleader Ambasador Jessica about the Redskins Cheerleaders visiting the USS Harry S Truman . Well, she’s got a longer post up over at her blog:

I met Dawn about two and half years ago. We were both attending a prep class for the Washington Redskins cheerleaders and we happened to be sitting next to each other. I wanted to hate her. I really did. She has beautiful long black hair and green eyes, dimples and a perfect figure. But she was instantly nice to me and I realized there is nothing to dislike about her. We were both new to the D.C. area and had a lot in common. She is hilarious, smart and a great person. I think the first conversation we ever had she told me about her deep appreciation for the military, and that unfortunately she lost a very dear friend who served in the Marine Corps.

It was then that Dawn and I became friends and she’s been my biggest cheerleader ever since (pun intended). She even attended my commissioning ceremony. She is on her third year with the Washington Redskins cheerleaders and is doing so many good things. Not only does she get to cheer on our Skins in front of 90,000 fans at FedEx Field, she takes advantage of the opportunities to interact with the local community as well as members of our Armed Forces.

Redskins Cheerleaders entertain sailors, families for USS Harry S. Truman

When it comes to entertaining our Armed Forces, the Redskins Cheerleaders are tops. Their smiling faces are not just seen about town, visiting the troops at Walter Reed and Bethesda naval hospital, but they are all over the world, having performed over 30 Military Appreciation Tours since 1999. They’ve also been a regular staple at Fleet Week New York City since 2003.

Last week the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) in Norfolk Virginia, had a family day cruise. They are deploying soon and this is a way they give back to the sailors and their families. The cheerleaders were invited for the weekend, performing several dances and signing photos for the sailors and their families.

Melanie Coburn, Director of Marketing for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders says “We are so grateful for our service men and women and are honored to be able to give back to them throughout the year.”

They book about one or two overseas visits a year for the troops and have a special variety show, dancing to the always popular “Proud to be an American,” and wearing patriotic costumes.

P-R-O: The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders New Look

Every year there are changes to the Redskins Cheerleaders uniform. Sometimes the change is subtle, not this year.

Good friend of the blog, Talmesha, who is less than a year away from earning her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Medicine, shows off the new skirt.

Here’s a second look at the skirt with rookie Ashley. The skirt is part of the “primary” uniform. The shorts are still around, but will be seen mostly at Cheerleader appearances.

For a reminder of what the shorts look like here are Jessica, Denise, Chelsea and Khlover.

What Do You Think of the Redskins Cheerleaders New Skirt?
Good choice! The skirt is hot!
Nice, but I prefer the shorts.
Both are excellent.
