If you have a friend or family member in the military and would like to have them honored for their service this might be for you.

According to the Rockford IceHogs Twitter, "Your are looking for a few hometown heroes to honor at our remaining home games!"

What better way to honor someone who gives their life to secure the freedom of our country?

Much like the IceHogs, the Chicago Blackhawks do the same thing before their home games. Matter of fact, my brother-in-law, who's an Army veteran was honored before a game a couple of years ago. It was a very cool thing to see and hear his name announced.
