HELLO KOMET HOCKEY CLUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is SFC Ryan Bridgewater sending his “GO KOMETS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!” all the way from Iraq. It has been awesome to get all of the news of this seasons run for the cup. Congratulations on such a phenomenal season. I wish the soldiers from the 1st Battalion 293rd Infantry could have been there to cheer on such a great hockey club, through such an outstanding season. You better believe that the fans that are here are all conversing about how well the team has done up to this point and keeping each other informed of the teams situations, trades, injuries, game scores, etc. You can also count on there being plenty of team support when we return home at the end of this deployment. Our gym here has floor hockey games and we are currently trying to get a rhythm down where we can get enough soldiers together on a regular basis and start our own team. You bet, those of us that are trying to put it together have already agreed that we will carry the Fort Wayne Komet name with us on to the field of battle at the gym and ensure that everyone knows just who they are playing against, some good old Komet fans. I also wanted send my thanks and the thanks of the soldiers who have made mention of the care packages from the items collected during the home games in support of the troops. The care packages were plentiful and well appreciated by all, Thank you for your support! Anyways, I just wanted to say Good Luck and Best Wishes to the players, staff, owners, and fans of that fantastic organization as the pursuit for the glory of championship nears.
