Supported by the U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg, the Veterans Day Hockey Game was played in front of 500 people, a new season record, on 17 November, one week after Veterans Day and the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. Tornado won the game 17-3.
The special bond that exists between the United States and Luxembourg, forged during WWI and WWII, was fostered again during this friendly game between Tornado and Spangdahlem. After the game, both teams went for dinner in a nearby restaurant where Tornado thanked Spangdahlem for their visit and where new plans were made for the next season.
As in last year, parts of the proceeds will go to support a good cause; this year, Tornado selected Wonschstär, an organisation that helps people, especially children, suffering from illness or injuries, to realise their dream.
