Operation Comfort presented the team with sleds donated from their organization and the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) outfitted the sled hockey team with equipment and jerseys. The Rampage (AHL) continues to host various fundraising events, including their annual Military Appreciation Night, to raise money to support the Rampage Sled Hockey Team.

The Rampage are the only sled hockey team in the United States that consists of all wounded military service members. The team is run by Operation Comfort, a non-profit organization that works with wounded service members coming from Iraq and Afghanistan who are recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. The team is led by Lonnie Hannah, a two-time Paralympian who was named USA Hockey’s Disabled Athlete of the Year in 2009. This year’s team features two USA National Sled Hockey Team members, Rico Roman and Jen Yung Lee.
