Navy vs Virginia Men's D1 Game
Saturday, Oct 11, 2014
Virginia Beach Sportsplex, 6pm Faceoff
The Tidewater Chapter wishes to honor the service members lost on August 6, 2011 when Extortion 17 was downed in Afghanistan. The CH-47 Chinook helicopter, call sign Extortion 17, was tragically shot down by enemy fire in Afghanistan resulting in the worst loss of life in a single incident during the Afghanistan campaign; 30 active duty military and one military working dog were killed in action on this day.
This event will showcase the lacrosse community’s spirit and willingness to give back to the community, and all memorial donations and ticket sale proceeds from the game will be presented to the Navy SEAL Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project in the memory of these warriors.
Ticket information will be available shortly.
