Supporting TAPS


Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson skates with a child who has found healing through TAPS.

The Washington Capitals hosted more than 150 children and adults who are assisted by the program during a skating party at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Feb. 24 to launch the 2014-15 Courage Caps campaign. A nonprofit organization, TAPS provides comfort and care for anyone who is grieving the death of someone who died while serving in the military. Courage Caps and T-shirts will be sold for $20 online at, at the Washington Capitals Team Store at Kettler Capitals Iceplex and at the Team Store and at stands throughout Verizon Center during Capitals home games.
