The Huntsville Havoc hockey team celebrated Military Appreciation Night on Dec. 28 in their game against the Macon Mayhem.

Lt. Gen. Neil Thurgood represented Team Redstone during the pregame ceremony at the Von Braun Center’s Propst Arena. He is the director of the Hypersonics, Directed Energy, Space and Rapid Acquisition, Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office.

About 15 future Marines were sworn in by Thurgood in a ceremony on the ice between the first and second periods.

The night’s charity of choice was Still Serving Veterans. The Havoc (1-1) lost 2-1 to the Mayhem (1-0).
