On this Veterans Day, the Griffins join teams from around hockey in thanking and saluting all the current and past members of the U.S. Armed Forces who have fought to protect our country and promote freedom around the world.
While there is no Griffins game today, the Red Wings will host Military Appreciation Night during their 7:30 p.m. game against Edmonton.
If you go to The Joe tonight, or happen to see an active duty or retired serviceman or servicewoman today, please take a moment to express your appreciation.
(Note: The Afternoon Shift is taking a long weekend and will return on Monday.)
