Capitals Salute to Military

Coast Guard Hockey was proud to continue their work with the Washington Capitals as they hosted their 20th annual Salute to the Military Night on Tuesday, March 15, during the game against the New York Islanders at Capital One Arena. Salute to the Military Night is an evening dedicated to honoring the men and women who have served the country in the armed forces.


In attendance for the Coast Guard were Vice Admiral Paul Thomas, Deputy Commandant of Mission Support, and Petty Officer Michael Cortese, a YN3 at the Coast Guard Personnel Service Center. Both were treated to a suite during the game alongside other members of the military, with Petty Officer Cortese receiving a special salute on the jumbotron during the game. The Washington Capitals and Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation's Military Night Auction featuring special camouflage warmup jerseys raised $66,575 for the United Heroes League. The jerseys were worn during warmups during Salute to the Military Night on March 15 versus the New York Islanders. Vice Admiral Paul F.
