Hockey has always been a deep love of mine, from a very young age I was playing street hockey in my neighborhood to playing pond hockey and eventually playing with my unit in the US Army. Coming home from Afghanistan in 2011 as an Infantry machine gunner with the 10th Mountain DIV, readjusting has been a long ongoing, amazing and difficult experience. Finding peace once again on the ice surrounded by our country’s finest, has helped in so many ways and brings me inner peace and happiness, as I once felt as a kid. I remember days of skipping school to shovel off the pond, then waiting for my friends too get down and have a pick up game on the freshly cleaned ice. Days spent playing NHL video games for hours alone and with friends. Hockey is a huge part of who I am. After returning home from my combat deployment I was numb to so many things and angered at the world, and the man I had become. It was not until  hundreds of hours of mental health work and self discipline that I rediscover and rekindled my love for the game of hockey. Sharing the sport with my children and wife bringing them to games, and having hockey night in the driveway, to torturing them with hockey highlights on YouTube every morning. My love for hockey has been a huge part of my recovery, and is a part of who I am not only internally but in my heritage. Please help me raise funds for this amazing cause. Please help support our military veterans and first responders that I will skate beside, so that we can help families of military, veterans and first responders in need with the donations from this great organization. And most importantly spread mental health awareness, I am a huge advocate for mental health and those that know me understand my passion and what it means to me. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and any contribution you have made. Sincerely and respectfully, Jeff DaSilva.
