TO CELEBRATE THE AIR FORCE'S 60TH ANNIVERSARY


Saturday, March 17th, 7:00 P.M. vs. Colorado

The Phoenix Coyotes are excited to help the Air Force celebrate it's 60th Anniversary through 'Armed Forces Night' by honoring military personnel at the Coyotes game Saturday, March 17th at 7:00 P.M. when they host Colorado.

Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs and Luke Air Force Base Lt. General Carrol H. Chandler will be on hand to drop the puck together in a pre-game ceremony. The puck will be delivered via Air Force Special Forces Soldiers and Howler, who will repel down from the rafters of Jobing.com Arena to the ice.

There will be many special presentations throughout the evening. The LAB Honor Guard will present the colors and Lt. Steven Cabrera will sing the National Anthem. The Lt. General will recognize five airmen who were deployed in Iraq who will be in attendance at the game.

To show support for the military, the Coyotes are offering all military personnel, their family and friends an exclusive opportunity to purchase discounted game tickets for that night. The Coyotes plan to help kick off Air Force Week activities to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Air Force and culminate with the Luke Days Air Show March 24-25. The Coyotes will honor those who serve with pre-game and intermission ceremonies.

Packages start as low as $20 and include a ticket to the game, a free hot dog and soda voucher and a Coyotes visor.
