LAFD Hockey Team Honored to Support Wounded Warrior Project

Sunday, January 15, 2012 |

On Thursday, January 12, 2012 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, the LAFD Hockey Club had the honor of facing the Patriots Hockey Team in a match to benefit the Wounder Warrior Project.

Our friends at Fox News tell the story in this video:

A non-profit organization comprised of over 40 Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters, the LAFD Hockey Club competes in a Police/Fire league as well as tournaments and charity games that support worthy causes.

Comprised entirely of active duty, reserve, retired and military veterans, the Patriots Hockey Team was founded as a way for members of our Armed Forces to enjoy the game while giving back to the military community.

The LAFD Hockey Club and Patriots Hockey Team were proud to honor and empower wounded warriors through their charitable competition. To learn more about the true winner of their faceoff, visit:

Mr. Gillette,

Thank you for sharing your first-hand account of the event at

We're pleased that you and your son were able to spend quality time together in the presence of our heroes - and we're not talking about firefighters :)

Having a chance to meet and compete with the Patriots Hockey Team was an honor for members of the LAFD Hockey Club, and we hope you'll again join us for the rematch!

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Public Service Officer
