CAMP BEUHRING, Kuwait - Despite being deployed, Minnesota "State of Hockey" citizen-soldiers keep their hockey spirit alive with a tournament to commemorate Hockey Day Minnesota.
The tournament of four teams from the Minnesota National Guard’s 1st Brigade Combat Team “Red Bulls” was held at Camp Buehring, Kuwait, Jan. 21.
When soldiers from 1st Brigade Combat Team, 34th Infantry Division woke up to play hockey, they were welcomed with a high of 52 degrees and low of 35 degrees, unusually cold for the 100+ weather the soldiers acclimated to this past summer.
