Behind every exceptional service member, often times there is an equally exceptional family that provides a crucial support system. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers honor the incredible sacrifices made by these military families with the “General H Norman Schwarzkopf Military Family of the Year Award” presented each year to one active-duty family from each branch of the military (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard/Reserves). These families are recognized for their demonstrated values of integrity, courage, commitment and service before self in service to our country. In 2017, Clinton McDonald was chosen to speak at this event in an effort to show his support to commitment to members of the military and their families.
