For the first time in franchise history, the Chicago Blackhawks will wear special camouflage jerseys during warm-ups on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11, before taking on the Colorado Avalanche at the United Center at 7:30 P.M., as part of the Blackhawks/Boeing “Salute to the Military.”

These one-of-a-kind jerseys, which are being worn in support of those that serve or have served in the military, will be autographed by the player that sports them and auctioned online at chicagoblackhawks.com between November 11 and 18, with all proceeds benefitting the USO of Illinois. The Blackhawks and Boeing are also hosting 50 military members and their guests at the game as part of the “Salute to Military” program.

“We are truly grateful to be partners with the Blackhawks and Boeing,” USO of Illinois President and COO Anthony Enrietto Jr. said. “This relationship is the embodiment of the profound respect and gratitude that our country and these organizations feel for the men and women who wear the cloth of our nation. The outpouring of support from both sides has been amazing.”

“It’s an honor for our organization and players to take part in such a special cause,” Blackhawks Senior Vice President of Business Operations Jay Blunk said. “This is something that has never been done in our franchise’s 83 years. We all stand in appreciation for the sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed forces each and every day and are excited to help pay tribute in this way.”
