Capital Salute

Capitals continue to focus on their gratitude the Military.

1000 Service Members will be in attendance for the Capitals Military Appreciation Night. Impressive.

The Capitals have made it a point to honor the Military at game including jersey auctions and in-game tributes.

The Capitals honored the armed forces at Monday night’s game, which coincided with Veteran’s Day. The annual Military Appreciation Night featured the US Army Chorus Quartet singing the national anthem and special programming during intermissions to celebrate the men and women who have served.

During warm-ups before the game, Capitals players wore dark green, military-inspired jerseys, which were then auctioned along with autographed sticks and pucks to benefit TAPS (The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors). TAPS is a nonprofit which offers compassionate care to families grieving the loss of a loved one in the armed forces.
