NHL Helps Army Celebrate Birthday by Donating Equipment to Soldiers

Most avid sport fans are familiar with the type of outreach to troops the NFL has done. From sending players overseas, to doing special broadcasts and shout outs the league is no stranger to recognizing men and women in uniform. Another big sports entity is stepping up in this arena and doing something not done before-donating equipment. The celebrate Army’s 235th birthday, the NHL donated multiple sets of official NHL-licensed street hockey equipment and apparel to help launch the first NHL Street Hockey League at Camp Victory in Baghdad.

It is always exciting to see entertainers and athletes publicly show support for those serving, but it is even more refreshing to see innovative programs such as the one the NHL initiated in order to increase the morale of members of the armed services. This raises the question, what will the NBA do? Hopefully, they will follow suit and show their support for those that enable us to enjoy the freedoms that we do. High morale amongst troops is critical as far as mission success.
