WASHINGTON - Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Public Affairs is partnering with professional and college sports teams to highlight military personnel and their units, in a fun way.

JBAB PA is looking for enthusiastic military members to feature in short video clips to be broadcast during upcoming games and special events to get the crowd pumped up.

Video sessions are now being scheduled and will be conducted outdoors on the grounds of JBAB and in the JBAB PA studio.

Personality and enthusiasm are key. Having fun while on camera is encouraged; having fun as a group may be contagious.

Units and individuals are highly encouraged to participate and may be featured in one or more team videos, as desired.

Personnel in sensitive billets or units may use a “stage name” and omit the unit identifier in the videos, simply stating their location as “Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling.”

Currently, videos are being produced for the following:

Washington Nationals (Major League Baseball) needed: military personnel in uniform, stating their name, rank, unit and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling) then do a shout out to cheer on the Nats.

New York Yankees (Major League Baseball) needed: military personnel in uniform, stating their name, rank, unit, hometown and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling) then and your message to the Yankees or do a shout out to cheer on the Bronx Bombers.

New York Mets (Major League Baseball) needed: military personnel in uniform, stating their name, rank, unit, hometown and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling) then do a shout out to get the Mets fans to their feet.

Cincinnati Reds (Major League Baseball) needed: groups of military personnel in uniform, regardless of where they are originally from, stating their name, rank, unit and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling) and starting a chant “Let's… go… Reds! Let's… go… Reds!” The groups can be from the same unit and service branch or can include members of different service branches, to show the joint flavor at JBAB.

Also needed: military personnel in uniform originally from the Cincinnati area, stating their name, rank, unit and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling) and hometown, then tell the fans to get on their feet and make some noise!

Atlanta Braves (Major League Baseball) needed: military personnel in uniform, stating their name, rank, unit and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling), your message to the Braves or Braves Fans, such as “Go Braves” or “Don’t stop the chop!” etc.

The Braves would also like to honor Chipper Jones, who is retiring at the end of the season. They would like service members to shout out specifically to Chipper Jones, i.e.: "To Braves legend Chipper Jones- thanks for the memories and go Braves!"

University of Central Florida (college football) is holding a Military Appreciation Game and would like to feature military fans. Needed: military personnel in uniform, stating their name, rank, unit and location (Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling) then shouting, “Go Knights!”
