The Albany Devils will celebrate American Heroes night at Boardwalk Hall on Saturday, March 1. The AHL affiliate of the three time Stanley Cup Champion New Jersey Devils will face off against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at 5 p.m.
American Heroes Night will honor current and veteran police officers, firefighters, and members of the military in various ways throughout the evening. For starters, a special discounted $5 ticket will be available to American Heroes who wish to attend the hockey game. These can be purchased at the Boardwalk Hall Box Office with a valid ID. Military, police, and firefighter organizations also have the opportunity to book as a group by calling (609) 348-7023 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the first intermission of the hockey game, a Chair of Honor will be unveiled to honor our American POWs and MIAs. This initiative, the POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program, was set forth by the non-profit organization Rolling Thunder®, Inc. whose mission is to raise awareness of American POW and MIA issues. This chair will be installed and remain unoccupied at Boardwalk Hall to remember and honor our POW/MIA soldiers. The dedication of the Chair of Honor will be presented by the president of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. Chapter 4 NJ, Paul Berenotto.
