The National Hockey League paid tribute to the troops at pre-game and intermission events at the Outdoor Winter Classic Game yesterday.

A crowd of 42,832 came to their feet as nearly 200 service members came on the field representing all five branches of the armed forces as the U.S. Army Chorus performed the national anthem.  Behind them on the ice, players from area military and law enforcement hockey teams unfurled a massive 120- by 65-foot U.S. flag.

Fireworks accompanied the performance as well as a flyover by a pair of Air National Guard F-16 Fighting Falcons from the District of Columbia’s 113th Wing. #patriotism #military #NHL
