Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! There is one thing that the Chicago Blackhawks due every game that is truly Awesome, and that is honoring veterans before every game at the National Anthem. 

So before I go any further here is Jim Cornelison singing the National Anthem to start our Memorial Day.

First off please let me say I very genuine Thank You to all the veterans out there, and of course a very solemn Thank You to all those that have family members that gave the biggest sacrifice so that we could live in a free country which happens to be the greatest country in the world.

The Chicago Blackhawks also have a great history when it comes to the armed forces with the actual nickname Blackhawks coming from the original owner Frederic McLaughlin who fought for the 333rd Machine Gun Battalion of the 86th Infantry In World War I. The Division was nicknamed the Blackhawk Division, and it became the nickname of McLaughlin’s Chicago Hockey franchise.
