WINDSOR -- The Adopt-A-Vet foundation is benefiting from a friendly competition between local members of the army and navy.

The third annual Navy v. Army hockey game took place at 12 p.m. on Sunday, with Navy winning 11-1.

The teams are faced off in the main bowl at the WFCU Centre. The event was free, but all attendants were encouraged to bring a food item to support local food banks.

The game was played to support the Adopt-A-Vet foundation and local food banks, as well as to foster community relations with the Canadian Armed Forces and veterans.

The goal of Adopt-A-Vet is to make sure no veteran is forgotten and never feels alone, especially over the holidays.
