The Philadelphia Flyers honored the troops by giving them the shirts off their backs.
The Flyers donated special warmup jerseys to 23 veterans as part of Military Appreciation Night against the New York Islanders on Saturday.
The Flyers sported camouflage jerseys during the pregame warmup then gifted the top to each military member. Many Flyers players signed the jersey for his assigned serviceman or woman, and each player received a commemorative hat in return.
Army 1st Lt. Melissa Stockwell and Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts also participated in a ceremonial puck drop after delighting the Flyers by announcing their starting lineup pregame. Stockwell is a two-time Paralympian who won a bronze medal in the Paratriathlon in 2016, and Pitts is a Medal of Honor recipient.
Gritty even dressed the part.
