CapitalsMilitaryNight (8 of 8)

The Washington Capitals honor a lot of charities, something many teams do. Playing in the city that houses the countries government, though, creates a special bond with the military. The team skates with families of the fallen, recognizes injured soldiers during games, and raises money for military charities.

On Thursday, the Caps did even more, holding their 10th annual Military Appreciation Night. The Caps wore desert camouflage jerseys during warmups (auctioned off during the game), and hosted the Navy Mites on Ice team and the USA Warriors hockey team during the intermissions. A number of tickets were also given away to soldiers and veterans.

Below, take a look at some photos of the special jerseys:

    I respect the reason for them, but I couldn’t stand these jerseys. Until I saw it on Holtby.

    I love useless gestures in “support” of the troops. If people really wanted to honor the troops they would march on Washington and demand that our boys be brought home from pointless wars.
