We Salute Her Game presented by Leidos



The Washington Mystics will honor active, reserve and retired service members during our annual We Salute Her Night, Tuesday, May 23 vs. the Connecticut Sun.

Servicewomen lead the presentation of colors and national anthem. On the concourse there was a We Salute Her Story gallery, courtesy of the Military Women’s Memorial, spotlighting the stories of the diverse women serving our country. Fans were able to write messages of support to service women and men and their families.

We Salute Her Game Changer Honorees

On Tues. May 23 we recognized three Servicewomen as our We Salute Her Game Changer Honorees in a special ceremony. The Washington Mystics new Nike Rebel Edition Uniform is inspired by the story of early civil rights pioneer and educator Nannie Helen Burroughs. Inspired by Burroughs’ story, we launched the Legacy campaign, a dedication and celebration of women who are making a difference and answering the call to own their legacy. Throughout the season, the Mystics will honor women “Game Changers” at halftime ceremonies during eight home games.
