Scott Swanson of Elmira was a Veteran of the Game last season. The Army veteran served three tours of duty in Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, South Korea and Kosovo.

The Ziff Law Firm will soon begin its sixth season of honoring Twin Tiers military veterans during Elmira Jackals home games, and is seeking nominations for the 2014-2015 ECHL hockey season at First Arena in Elmira.

The Ziff Law Firm is very proud to sponsor this opportunity for veterans to be publicly thanked for their service. We can’t imagine more deserving recipients of our thanks.

Male and female veterans and active-duty personnel who are home on leave can be nominated for the Veteran of the Game program by clicking here, or by contacting Annette Viselli Thorne at or 607-733-8866, ext. 218.

One veteran is honored at each regular-season home game.

Clyde Lahnum of Horseheads, a Navy and Coast Guard veteran, was honored last season.

Those selected receive four free tickets to a game. During the game, the public-address announcer introduces the veteran and reads a short biography of their military service, and then Jackals fans salute the veteran with a big cheer.

“The veterans who are honored say it is a night they will remember forever, and we hope to create more great memories this season for Twin Tiers veterans and their families,” said Annette Viselli Thorne of the Ziff Law Firm.

Opening night for the Jackals is Oct. 17 against the Kalamazoo Wings at First Arena. The Jackals play 35 more regular-season home games before the season concludes in April.                     

More than 175 veterans have been honored by the Ziff Law Firm and Jackals fans in the last five seasons.
