Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks faceoff against the Carolina Hurricanes tonight in Raleigh, but before we talk about the game I want to say Happy Veteran’s Day to all the Veteran’s out there that read this blog! 

I’ve heard the saying that Hero’s come pretty cheap these days, and I understand what that means so please don’t underestimate what i’m about to say.

To all the Veteran’s out there please know that you are my hero!  You weren’t afraid to serve our country and that means so much to me.

My grandfather served during World War II, and both my father and mother in laws  served as well so it means a lot to me to see the flag flying and for people to say thank you!! The older you get the more you appreciate your freedoms and the sacrifice.  At work, I try my best to shake hands and say thank you to anyone shopping wearing a hat saying they served in one of the armed forces.

The Chicago Blackhawks name if you don’t know comes from an armed forces background.  The original owner fought in World War I in a unit named Blackhawk and when he purchased the team named them after this unit, so I really appreciate all the ceremony that goes on before the National Anthem at the United center during every home game.

Sure, the Hawks are playing tonight are in a bit of a funk, but if you are a Veteran I just want to say Thank you!!
