The New York Islanders are proud to recognize local military personnel who actively serve or have served our country. These heroes protect America and represent all citizens. At each New York Islanders home game this season the Islanders will honor and host military men or women as part of the Military Hero of the Game. Each military hero receives four (4) VIP tickets to the game and a special in-game recognition. In the event games are played without fans, heroes will be honored virtually and/or via Islanders social media.
