8th Annual CFB Trenton Pond Hockey Classic
CFB Trenton is known to most Canadians as the base where repatriated soldiers continue their journey home on the Highway of Heroes. Members of CFB Trenton have participated in every repatriation ceremony and have witnessed first hand the grief and loss of the military families. Together with the local community, we organized the CFB Trenton Pond Hockey Classic in support of Wounded Warriors Canada and the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation. This event will help support Canada's ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces military members, veterans and their families.
