A hockey team made up of veterans, reserve  and active-duty sailors and Marines is taking on a San Diego law enforcement team for charity this weekend. The military Patriots will play the law enforcement Spartans Oct. 19 at the San Diego Ice Arena, with all proceeds from the $10 tickets going to the San Diego Police Officers Association Widows and Orphans fund. A wounded warrior will drop the puck following a pre-game moment of silence and bagpipe performance from the San Diego Police Department. For more information about the event, check out the Patriots on Facebook. Email HM2 (FMF)…

Full details of the basketball game in San Diego on an aircraft carrier on Veterans Day 2011 haven’t been released, but there already are plans afoot to hold the event in the following two years. Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis told the Lansing (Mich.) State Journal this week that the Spartans could play on a carrier in 2012 and 2013.
