Colorado Avalanche Veteran's Day ceremony

The Colorado Avalanche have a creative way to handle their Veteran's Day ceremony this year:

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club will honor four distinguished U.S. war veterans at its game with the Los Angeles Kings tomorrow night in advance of Veterans Day on November 11.

The Avalanche will introduce four US World War II veterans, representing each of the two theaters of operation.

* Ed Tipper – D-Day veteran and member of 101st Airborne Division, 506th Easy Company, an original member of the “Band of Brothers”
* Bill Brunger – Served with the 75th Infantry Division at the Battle of the Bulge
* James Blaine – Served with the 4th Marines Division that was in the first wave of units to land at Iwo Jima
* Robert Lowe – Served with the 6th Marines Division and is a veteran of battles at Guam, Saipan and Okinawa
