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:
