The Army National Guard of Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire were honouring the New England soldiers who have recently returned from their tours of duty abroad during select games.
The Boston Celtics and the Army National Guard hoped to pay their respects to the soldiers of New England who risk their lives on a daily basis protecting American interests abroad.
The Celtics have been working hard to make sure their games can worthy of the returning American heroes. Ray Allen’s 21-foot game winning jumper during last week’s match-up against Detroit was an inspired shot, imbued with the go-getting spirit of a team hungry for success.
No doubt Military Appreciation month is something close to Celtic Ray Allen’s heart, having been raised in a military family himself.
January in particular had shaped up to be a strong month for the Boston Celtics. The excitement has been felt by the fans as well. Celtic’s fan Robert Menzel was randomly selected last week in a game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers, to participate in the Massachusetts state lottery Celtic’s Cash promotion where he won $200,000.
The Boston Celtics are a strong team with a strong fan-base, and no doubt the continued promotions and successes of the Celtics will keep fans coming back for more. The Boston Celtic’s Shamrock Foundation continues to support local charities, and are accepting donations for organizations supporting the local community.
