The NiteHawks participated in the city of Bellevue’s annual Veterans Day Parade on Nov 10th, 2018. It was a bitterly cold day, and the Nite Hawks showed up all bundled up excited to walk in the parade. The players wore custom T-Shirts that played tribute to a veteran: themselves, a spouse, parent, grandparent or aunt or uncle.
