The Cup Touches The Marines

You may remember Glen Wesley took the Cup to Camp Lejeune recently. Great write-up... from John McGourty of NHL.com,
As a member of the Stanley Cup-winning Hurricanes, Wesley was entitled to one day with the Stanley Cup and he decided to spend part of that day with members of Wounded Warrior Barracks at Camp Lejeune. Wesley hoped it would help pay respect and raise the spirits of the wounded Marines and that it did. It was an amazing visit. The Marines joked with Wesley about his injuries and theirs. Some compared the severity of the injuries that he's suffered stopping pucks and being banged into the boards to the injuries they've received from suicide bombers, improvised explosive devices and conventional ordnance.
