Flyers give military family their son for Christmas

- December 13th, 2013

The Windish family got the best kind of Christmas present courtesy of the Philadelphia Flyers.

During Thursday’s game against the Montreal Candiens at the Wells Fargo Center, Joann and Mark Windish were presented with an award as their son, Matthew, was named that night’s Hometown Hero in honour of his military service.

That award? It was Matthew — three weeks ahead of his scheduled return from South Korea — wrapped in a life-sized action figure box.

Thanks in part to the Flyers, the entire Windish family will get to celebrate Christmas together.
