In honor of Veteran’s Day, Stater Bros. Charities and the Ontario Reign Hockey Team will host a Military Appreciation Night Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the Citizen Business Bank Arena in Ontario for soldiers returning from overseas, active duty officers and local veterans.
Each branch of service will be present at the Military Appreciation Night: Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy, and the Coast Guard along with troops who have recently returned from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Special guest appearances include the family of Justin Crabbe, a Marine from Rancho Cucamonga who received the Purple Heart award earlier this year. Stater Bros. will be presenting $1,000 in Stater Bros. gift cards to the family of Justin Crabbe during the game.
In addition, approximately 65 US Army recruits will be sworn in on the ice.
