The Special Operations Warrior Foundation contacted us and said that the US hockey team wanted to honor fallen Special operations soldiers. About a week before the Olympics began, we were informed that Paul Martin of the Penguins was chosen to have “Tre’s” name under his uniform. Paul Martin was playing in the memory of MSG James “Tre” Ponder III, a member of the Night Stalkers that was sent on a rescue mission to save SEAL Team 10 in 2005 in an event documented by the movie “Lone Survivor.” Eight Night Stalkers and eight SEALS in a helicopter were all killed when a rocket-propelled grenade hit their helicopter while it was landing.
