New Jersey Devils forward Kyle Palmieri continues to make a difference off the ice while supporting those who dedicate their lives to protect America.
Since joining the New Jersey Devils in 2015, Jersey fans are most familiar with Kyle Palmieri doing his part on the ice for the red and black to succeed. However, the New Jersey native is also contributing away from the rink and in a considerable way.

In 2016, Palmieri began a military recognition program called Squad21, which recently blossomed into The Kyle Palmieri Foundation. The non-profit’s goal is “to give back to the patriots who put their lives on the line to preserve our freedoms as Americans.”
The three-time 20-goal scorer with New Jersey took his cause one step further after the foundation officially announced a partnership with Tag the Flag for the month of November 2019.
