NY Islanders Celebrate Military Appreciation Day at Nassau Collesium

The 106th Rescue Wing's Pararescue Jumpers (PJs) helped make Veteran's Day memorable for those in attendance at the New York Islander hockey game on November 11, 2008 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Colesium, Uniondale, N.Y. The PJs rappelled off the rafters of the coliseum carrying the United States flag while the National Anthem was being played by the Air Force Liberty Brass Band. Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell made an appearance and helped out by dropping the ceremonial first puck along with Islander's owner Charles Wang. (Official USAF Photo by Staff Sgt.
